Tips for writing and citations
For research-based written work, there are rules to follow in order not to be accused of copying/pasting or plagiarism: put text in quotes, add references and footnotes, apply citation standards, write a bibliography, etc.
In order to promote copyright and intellectual property, you must indicate the sources you use. By not cheating, falling for plagiarism or duplicating content, you can:
- Attest to honest behaviour
- Promote original creations
- Contribute to research
- Attest to the quality of your work
