I had to check out what plagiarism is before submitting the first assignment.
Universities overseas are more careful about using others' ideas than those in Japan
but it might vary from university to university sometimes.
I heard one of my professors is really strict about it. haha
I spent around 90 minutes on online tutorials...

I am sure that you do not want to read it all, so you can jump over to the end.
Here are some key points to keep in mind:

1. quoting
* use quotation marks
* copy the exact words
* give reference details.

2. paraphrasing
* keep the meaning
* change the word order
* change most of the words
* give reference details.

3. summarising
* keep the author's main ideas
* avoid simply copying the author's words
* make it clear which ideas are the author's and which are your own
* give reference details.

4. referencing
* make it clear which ideas are the author's and which are your own
* give the author's surname
* give the year of publication* give the page number (unless you are referring to ideas presented in
the publication as a whole).

Because we have to use the Harvard system, we must acknowledge our source in two places
* in the body of the assignment (in-text reference)
* in a list of references at the end of the assignment.

5. recognising common knowledge
*information you have seen in several books, papers or websites
* information your lecturer expects everyone in your class to know already
* well-known historical events, geographical and scientific facts
* something that 'everybody knows'.

6. tables and figures
* tables
* figures
charts/ graphs/ illlustrations / maps/ plans

* provide a caption
* specify whether it is a table or a figure
* number the table or figure
* give a reference to the source.

I cannot remember these things.
Oops!!
I need to let you know the website where I've got those information.
Am I so stupid if I plagiarise just after leaning plagiarism? haha

Here are some new phrase(s) that I have come across in daily life.
1. (on TV)

2. (in a newspaper)

3. (in a newspaper)
