What is Plagiarism?

You are guilty of plagiarism if you...

  • turn in someone else's work and claim it as your own.
  • copy words or ideas from someone else without giving credit.
  • fail to put a quotation in quotation marks (yes, this is plagiarism)
  • give incorrect information about the source of a quotation.
  • change words but copy the sentence structure of a source without giving credit.
  • copy so many words or ideas from a source that it makes up the majority of your work, whether you give credit or not.
