Plagiarism is broadly defined as presenting someone else’s ideas or work without acknowledging the source, whether intinationally or accidentally. Plagiarism in academia is considered academic dishonesty.
Common examples of plagiarism:
- copying sentences, paragraphs, data or visuals without properly citing their source
- Quoting material without proper use of quotation marks (even if otherwise cited appropriately)
- Paraphrasing or summarizing information from a source without proper acknowledgement;
- Paying someone for writing the assignment
- Listing a source in the bibliography/reference list that was not cited in the assignment
