Remember to evaluate your sources for credibility. Review factors such as information currency, relevance, and accuracy. Consider the author and publisher’s authority and purpose. This step is important since questionable sources could result in a poor grade.
Any sign of plagiarism can kill your grade and credibility. Don’t leave your paper’s fate to chance. Scan your paper with our plagiarism checker
and spot potential red flags before they become problems.
