See the OC Calendar's Academic Integrity policy on plagiarism. "Plagiarism is the presentation of another person's work or ideas without proper or complete acknowledgment" (Okanagan College [OC], 2013, Calendar).
Examples of plagiarism:
"Students are responsible for learning and applying the proper scholarly practices for acknowledging the work and ideas of others". (OC, 2013, Calendar): This student responsibility applies in all formats (print, online, and others).
Use the Avoid Plagiarism Tutorial to test yourself and find out more about plagiarism.
1. Identify the type of source that you have "in hand".
2. Find your puzzle pieces (Author(s), date, title of source, title of container source (book or journal or magazine the information source appears), publication information (publisher), access information (volume and issue numbers, page numbers, URL, DOI).
3. Find the example in an APA guide that matches your resource type (book, eBook, magazine article, website, etc.).
4. Build your citation puzzle with the pieces and examples you identified.
