by Henry Ford

5 Prompts What Way To Find Reliable Web Sources To Cite

Are you still wondering why to bother about the choice of online sources for your works or writing tasks?

What Are The Most Widespread Myths About Plagiarism?

“The great enemy of truth is very often not the lie – deliberate, contrived and dishonest – but the   myth – persistent, persuasive and unrealistic… 

We enjoy the comfort of opinion without the discomfort of thought.” 

by John F. Kennedy 

How often do you catch yourself thinking that a mistake you made was caused by some widespread misconceptions? If it happened more than once, then it’s high time to analyze the reasons for this outcome.

As a rule, you may tend to take wrong beliefs for truth just because of lack of reliable information or desire to carry out “an investigation” to find such reliable sources. As far as plagiarism is concerned, the latter explanation seems to be the most suitable, don’t you think so? Anyway, it’s never too late to upgrade your knowledge.

Thus, you will be able to avoid unwanted results, which can badly affect both your reputation in the Internet community and even result in financial losses, if you misinterpret certain issues related to plagiarism.
