Copyright and Plagiarism
Copyright is copying someone else's work. Plagiarism is using someone else's work without giving credit and presenting it as your own thoughts or ideas.
Examples of Plagiarism
- Quoting word-for-word from the internet, an article, or a book without acknowledging the author.
- Copying the content, in part or whole, of someone's work into your own work without citing the original source
- Copying or purchasing work to turn in as your own
- Creating a fake citation that does not exist
- Not crediting and citing someone else's thoughts when paraphrasing
- Paraphrasing in a way that relies too heavily on another's language or wording
