Introduction[edit]

Wikipedia is a free resource for everyone. Because everyone can use it, copy it, and re-use it freely, it can't contain restricted, copyrighted material.

You probably know that copying-and-pasting from a book or website and claiming it as your own work is plagiarism. That's the most egregious example, but it isn't the only one.

But don't panic. In this training, we'll go over forms of plagiarism to make sure you don't stumble!
