What is Plagiarism

The list below is from the book "The Curious Researcher" by Bruce Ballenger

  1. Handing in someone else's work - a downloaded paper from the internet or one borrowed from a friend and then claiming it's your own work
  2. Using information or ideas that are not common knowledge from any source and failing to acknowledge that source
  3. Handing in the same paper for two different classes
  4. Using exact language or expressions of a source and not indicating through quotation marks and citation that the language is borrowed
  5. Rewriting a passage from a source with minor substitutions or different words but retaining the same style and structure as the orginal
