Avoiding Plagiarism and Complying with Copyright

Plagiarism is taking credit for someone else’s idea, research, etc. Copyright gives the copyright holder (e.g. publisher or author) the right to control the copying of their work. This applies to books, reports, articles and even images in articles. Learn about plagiarism and copyright to avoid problems when writing your document.
