Plagiarism Prevention Resource Kit: Home

Plagiarism Prevention Resource Kit

The Walden University Student Handbook broadly defines plagiarism as the “use of intellectual material produced by another person without acknowledging its source” (“Plagiarism,” para. 1). Students come to Walden with a wide range of backgrounds, and some students may be less familiar with this definition of plagiarism—and the expectations that come with it—than others. Some students are new to paraphrasing, while other students are new to APA citation rules, both of which can be a challenge to avoiding plagiarism.

Walden has many resources to help students understand the expectations for accurately citing the sources they use in their writing. We have curated these resources in this kit, and we encourage you to use it to help you avoid plagiarism in your own writing.
