Plagiarism Defined

Plagiarism is defined as using another’s ideas, words, or knowledge in any format (print, online, media, etc.) and passing them on as your own.

Whether it is done intentionally or inadvertently, it is still considered plagiarism.

Plagiarism infringes on a person’s right to intellectual property; it is a form of stealing—committing academic dishonesty and infringes on copyright law.
