If you have to copy, attribute what you copied to the actual author of the material. Use footnotes and credits.

Write your notes in the form of a paraphrase, unless you want to use a direct quotation.


If you are afraid that you will self-plagiarise (especially an issue for those who publish many works), it is best to check your new article for plagiarism using a plagiarism detection tool.
