2. Used direct quotations sparingly.

3. Provided a reference for every image, diagram or figure (unless you created it).

4. Included a reference list of all work cited.

5. If possible, kept a copy of the original sources that you have referred to.

6. NOT used copy and paste to take text from another source (unless it is a direct quote and you reference it).
