Referencing and Avoiding Plagiarism
Professor Catherine Chiu
Department of General Education
Technological and Higher Education Institute of Hong Kong

What is plagiarism? How can we avoid it?

When we write a paper or do a presentation, very often we draw on other authors’ works including books, journal articles, articles on websites, chapters in books and research reports. To avoid plagiarism, we need to learn how to cite and acknowledge source materials properly.

In this seminar, Professor Chiu will discuss with you the meaning of plagiarism and how to avoid it. She will show you how to write citations and references properly.
