Plagiarism, the passing of someone else's work as ones own, is completely and utterly unacceptable on Radiopaedia.org.
We know you all want to help, and you may be tempted to "cut and paste" sections of journal articles, textbooks, webpages into Radiopaedia.org cases and articles. However, be warned that even copying single sentences is unacceptable, even if you reference the source. Similarly merely changing one or two words in a paragraph is not sufficient.
Please take the time to find a couple of references, read and understand them and write content in your own words.
If you feel your mastery of the English language is not sufficient to write content yourself, please think of other ways of helping (see Getting Involved).
If you want advice or help please feel free to contact the editorial board on firstname.lastname@example.org.
