Most people know that a good way to avoid plagiarism is too properly cite ideas or words that are not the author’s own. However, many people get confused with what to cite. I found this video to clarify.

The video pretty much says to CITE EVERYTHING. It is not hard to give things attribution. Just use whatever style book your professor or boss approves.

A quick way to avoid plagiarism online is by using hyperlinks. The internet makes citations much easier. I can directly link the source of my information to my posts, papers, ect.

Lorrie Walker gives PR professionals some different advice. She says to avoid plagiarism simply conduct your own research. If you are gathering information from your own work, you do not have to worry about getting sued.
