1. What is Plagiarism?

Plagiarism means taking the words and thoughts of others (their ideas, concepts, creativity,
sentences, and soon) and using them as if they were your own, without citing the source. Most
plagiarism is a sort of theft and it is regarded as intellectual theft.

Plagiarism includes reproducing someone elses work, whether it be published article, a book, a
paper from a friend or some file, or whatever. Plagiarism may also include double submission,
self-plagiarism, or unauthorized resubmission of ones own work, as defined by the instructor.

Scenarios of Plagiarism:

A student borrows a friends essay to get some ideas for his own paper. With his friends
permission, he copies portions of it, taking care, however, to cite all the sources his friend
included in the original.

A student finds useful information on a Web site that is not under copyright. She
downloads and incorporates sections of this Web site into her paper, but does not cite it
since it is in the public domain.

2. Introduction to America Psychological Association (APA) 6th Style Referencing

APA is one of many referencing styles used in academic writing. APA stands for American
Psychological Association. The Association outlines the style in the Publication manual of the
American Psychological Association [APA] (6th ed.).

The American Psychological Association (APA) style is widely accepted in the social sciences
and other fields, such as education, business, and nursing. The APA citation format requires
parenthetical citations within the text rather than endnotes or footnotes. Citations in the text
provide brief information, usually the name of the author and the date of publication, to lead the
reader to the source of information in the reference list at the end of the paper.
