Tips to avoid plagiarism while writing research paper for Journal or Conference.

When you use ideas, facts, and opinions that are not your own -- even when you don't use the author's exact words -- you must give appropriate credit to the author as you incorporate his or her ideas into your paper. If you don't do so, you're committing plagiarism, one of the most serious offenses in academe. According to Katharine Hansen  If you don't do so, you're committing plagiarism, one of the most serious offenses in academe. Virtually every school has an honor code that prohibits plagiarism, and consequences range from failing the assignment or class in which the plagiarism occurred to being expelled from your college.

According to our previous article “Whatis Plagiarism and How to avoid this?” by Mr. A Dash, Member of IEEE ,Managing editor and Research Consultant , the plagiarism must be checked by a software and the author always try to write the paper in own words. He/She may take help from the experts to avoid the plagiarism. There are other ways to avoid plagiarism. Follow some simple steps while writing your research paper to ensure that your document will be free of plagiarism.

Using an Author's Exact Words:
  • Use quotation marks around all words copied from a source.
  • Choose to quote an author's exact words when the phrasing is unique or strengthens your argument.
  • Provide a citation for the source of the exact words you used immediately after the quotation.
Paraphrase
So you have found information that is perfect for your research paper. Read it and put it into your own words. Make sure that you do not copy verbatim more than two words in a row from the text you have found. If you do use more than two words together, you will have to use quotation marks. We will get into quoting properly soon.

Citing Your Own Material 
If some of the material you are using for your research paper was used by you in your current class, a previous one, or anywhere else you must cite yourself. Treat the text the same as you would if someone else wrote it. It may sound odd, but using material you have used before is called self-plagiarism, and it is not acceptable.

Referencing 
One of the most important ways to avoid plagiarism is including a reference page or page of works cited at the end of your research paper. Again, this page must meet the document formatting guidelines used by your educational institution. This information is very specific and includes the author(s), date of publication, title, and source. Follow the directions for this page carefully. You will want to get the references right.

Respecting Others
Giving credit for work that is not your own respects and honors the intellectual property of others and is expected by your professors

According to Writecheck:  A writer will never gain good writing skills if he or she does not create their own work. Not procrastinating and beginning papers early will help to squelch the temptation to cheat by plagiarizing. The writer's academic, professional, and personal reputation is too valuable to lose over a moment of laziness or weakness. Using a plagiarism checker is a helpful way to check for plagiarism, even accidental, and ensure that writing is original and well cited.
