What is Plagiarism?

Plagiarism is using another person's work without giving proper credit. "Proper credit" means using the correct citation style and format for the type of citation and clearly indicating in your writing that the work is not your own.

Examples of Plagiarism:

  • Copying and pasting words or phrases from an article without citing the source.
  • Citing the wrong source.
  • Copying a roommate's paper.
  • Reusing a paper you submitted for another class.
  • Buying a paper from a paper mill online.
  • Entering your paper into a translator and using that to write your paper.
