Two Questions

If you are using someone else's work in your own; there are two basic questions.

1. Have I acknowledged the work of others?

This helps us decide if we are using academic honesty in our work.

2. Can I use their work in my own?
This helps us decide if we are upholding copyright laws for other people's work.
