What is plagiarism?

The Oxford Dictionary defines plagiarism as: "the practice of taking someone else's work or ideas and passing them off as one's own." This includes copying someone else word-for-word without quotation marks, and citing a source incorrectly (or not at all).

How can I avoid plagiarism?

Whenever you use someone else's ideas, make sure you acknowledge them correctly in-text and in your reference list. If you're quoting the author directly, use quotation marks. If you're paraphrasing or summarizing the author, make sure to write it in your own words and provide the relevant reference details. You can check if you've plagiarized accidentally by running your document through Outwrite's plagiarism checker.

Is Outwrite free to use?

Outwrite's essential features, like grammar and spell checking, are available to all users for free. If you would like to check your work for plagiarism, you'll need to upgrade to our Pro plan.
