Adelphi University places a high value on academic honesty. 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. 

Examples of plagiarism include:

  • Turning in another person's work as your own (including papers from free websites).

  • Copying text, an excerpt, a paragraph, or a line without proper acknowledgment from books, periodicals, monographs, maps, charts, pamphlets, and other sources, such as the Internet or article databases.

  • Using a quotation without proper documentation (omitting quotation marks).

  • Paraphrasing material without citing the source(s).

  • Purchasing a paper from a research service or a commercial term-paper mill. Sharing or swapping from a local source (other students’ papers).
