What is Plagiarism?

What is Plagiarism?

Plagiarism is copying someone else’s work or idea and passing it off as your own, without proper acknowledgement. It is a form of theft and deception, an unethical act. Learn more from the HKU plagiarism webpage.

By properly citing the sources in your writings, you are both identifying the resources that you used to complete your work and formally acknowledging the authors or creators of those resources.

How to cite?

In academic writing, you need to give credit to the sources you referred to avoid academic cheating. Citation style governs the formatting of the academic paper, in-text citations and references.

For different subjects, you may be required to use different citation styles. APA, Chicago and Harvard are most common in business. Check with your instructors about which citation style to use before you write your papers.
