To avoid committing plagiarism, you must acknowledge the source of anything included in your submitted assignment that is not your own work.*
Your assignment can include a passage of text, an audio or visual object, computer code, a data set, or someone's original idea. Your source may be a book, a journal article, the Internet, even a conversation or email message.
You must acknowledge the origin of the work.
* Adequate acknowledgement is typically achieved through citing your source and including it in a reference list formatted according to one of the standard style guides. See the section Taking notes and citing sources for further information.
