Prevention of Plagiarism

Excellent examples and information are available in the Publication Manual

Document your paper throughout the text by citing by author and date the works used in your research. This approach helps the reader identify the source and enables them to locate the information in the reference list for further resource. APA does not use the “bibliography” approach that many of us learned in High School where ALL sources were listed. With APA, only sources that are actually cited in the text are listed on the reference page.

Here are some helpful resources for citations and prevention of plagiarism.
