In this paper, every OPINION from someone else has been indicated by a parenthetical citation
or reference number. I realize that the mere presence of a parenthetical note or reference number
does not avoid plagiarism.
 Parenthetical Citations: I have placed quotation marks around exact words, phrases,
clauses, or sentences of someone else. If I have paraphrased opinions of someone
else, I have stated those opinions in my own words (without quotation marks). I have
also introduced the quotations and paraphrases and followed the authors’ names with
parenthetical notes.
 Reference Numbers: I have placed quotation marks around exact words, phrases,
clauses, or sentences of someone else. If I have paraphrased the opinions of someone
else, I have stated those opinions in my own words (without quotation marks). I have
also introduced the quotations and paraphrases and put a reference number at the end
of the sentence.
ALL FACTUAL INFORMATION (common knowledge or uncontested knowledge),
though not credited with a parenthetical note or reference number, has been stated in my
sentence structure. I have not used anyone else’s organization of the facts.
This paper is my own first-time work. No one has helped me in the preparation or writing
of this paper. I understand that plagiarism detection software may be used on this paper.
