Plagiarism, put simply, is taking credit for work that isn't your own. This is addressed in two main ways for students:
- Knowingly copying someone else's work and submitting it as your own.
- Includes things like cheating on a test or assignment, or purchasing an essay or paper online.
Improper citation practices
- Although this is often unintentional, improper citation of resources in a research paper is also considered academic dishonesty or plagiarism.
- Take the time to learn about how to cite in MLA or APA style when you have an assignment involving research. Librarians can help you with any citation questions.
- We recommend you keep a research log to stay organized and make sure you don't accidentally plagiarize in your papers.
- The library's complete plagiarism help guide can be found here.
