Academic Integrity Tutorial

Here are some examples of Plagiarism:

  • Turning in someone else's work as your own.
  • Copying large pieces of text from a source without citing that source.
  • Taking passages from multiple sources, piecing them together, and turning in the work as your own.
  • Copying from a source but changing a few words and phrases to disguise plagiarism.
  • Paraphrasing from a number of different sources without citing those sources.
  • Turning in work that you did for another class without getting your professor's permission first.
  • Buying an essay or paper and turning it in as your own work.

 

It is possible to cite sources but still plagiarize. Here are some examples:

  • Mentioning an author or source within your paper without including a full citation in your bibliography.
  • Citing a source with inaccurate information, making it impossible to find that source.
  • Using a direct quote from a source, citing that source, but failing to put quotation marks around the copied text.
  • Paraphrasing from multiple cited sources without including any original work.
