The products of your own original work are your Intellectual Property. This includes writing, artwork, fiction, photographs, etc.
To demonstrate respect for others' intellectual property, you must give credit where it is due.
Respect the intellectual property of others - authors, artists, creators, producers - by paraphrasing and citing your sources.
When you write a research paper, you use information and facts from a variety of resources to support your own ideas to develop new ones. You cite these sources for the following reasons:
