More Q & As

question Can I turn in a paper for one class that I've written for another class?
answer Generally speaking, no. However, your instructor may work with you to come up with a solution to use the same topic.
question Do I only have to cite sources in my written papers?
answer You must document the source(s) of your information whether you are producing a written paper, giving a speech, creating a website, compiling PowerPoint slides -- or working in any other medium where you are sharing what you have learned.
question Does all this plagiarism stuff only count while I'm in college?
answer In college you could fail a class; outside of college you could lose your job or even be sued for copyright infringement. Journalists have been fired, the works of famous authors have been criticized, and research reports have been called into question, all under the dark cloud of plagiarism.
