Plagiarism is using the words and ideas of someone else and presenting them as your own. The act is a violation of trust and the consequences are serious.

For example, you must cite when using:

  • Another person’s ideas, words, opinions
  • Any facts, graphs, drawings, … ANY kind of information that is not common knowledge
  • Quotations: another person’s spoken or written words
  • Paraphrases: minimally changing another persons words or ideas
