*Some important notes on plagiarism:*
1. Drawing passages from other sources and inserting them into your paper without proper citation is plagiarism.
2. Drawing passages, even short phrases, word-for-word from other sources, citing the source, but without putting the quoted passages in quotation marks is plagiarism.  Doing so makes it appear as though you have paraphrased a passage when you have not. Changing a few words does not constitute legitimate paraphrase.
3. Taking ideas, evidence, lines of arguments, or facts from other sources, even if those sources are not print sources, and even if you have put it in your own words, without indicating the source is plagiarism.
4. Unacknowledged parallel passages in existing sources, whether in print or online, will normally be taken as proof of plagiarism.
