What is plagiarism?
Plagiarism is presenting someone else’s work, original ideas, or words as your own, without crediting the source.

Some forms of plagiarism
Presenting a paper written by someone else as your own
Presenting someone else’s research as your own
Presenting someone else’s original ideas or expert knowledge as your own
Presenting someone else’s words as your own

Common Examples of Internet-assisted Plagiarism:
Downloading Web pages or articles from the Internet and presenting them as your own work;
Copying sentences, paragraphs or passages from the Internet and pasting them into your paper without crediting the sources;
Buying papers from Internet “paper mills.”

Internet-assisted plagiarism is not hard to detect.

Direct quotes, summaries, and paraphrases all need to be cited.
Document the source of pictures, graphs, illustrations, that you did not create yourself.
