Hints for Avoiding Plagiarism: • More than three words is plagiarism. This is a good yardstick to use when wondering whether or not quotes are appropriate. They are, if you are copying more than three words in sequence. • One source is not “common knowledge.” Common knowledge does not require citation. But something is not common knowledge if you have found just one source for the information. • When in doubt, cite!
