What is plagiarism?
Represents the words or ideas of another as one’s own in any academic exercise.
Occurs when a student deliberately uses the ideas, language, or another writer’s original material (that is not common knowledge) without acknowledging the source.
Plagiarized materials include texts (print or online) as well as the work of other students. (Ashford University, "Academic Dishonesty Policy," 2013)

“Copy and paste” plagiarism, which involves copying and pasting materials from internet sources and presenting them as one’s original work.
The use and representation of another student's work as one's own, even if the student has the permission of the other student. (Ashford University, "Academic Dishonesty," 2013)
