    * Plagiarism is presenting someone else’s work as if it were your own, whether you mean to or not. ‘Someone else’s work’ means anything that is not your own idea, even if it is presented in your own style. It includes material from books, journals or any other printed source, the work of other students or staff, information from the Internet, software programs and other electronic material, designs and ideas. It also includes the organization or structuring of any such material. ...

    * Plagiarism usually uses a slightly varied brand name. The products hidden behind these names do sometimes not even exist in the assortment of the OEM.

    * The submission by a student of the words, ideas, images, or data of another person as the student's own in any academic writing, essay, thesis, research project, or assignment in a course or program of study.

    * A form of cheating by means of the unacknowledged, literal reproduction of ideas and material of other persons in the guise of new and original work. See Policy on Academic Integrity.

    * The theft of ideas or of written passages or works, where these are passed off as one’s own work without acknowledgement of their true origin.

    * Taking information from another source and passing it off as your own. This may be done by not giving credit for a quote or a passage of information or by deliberately copying a written work or downloading a paper from the Internet.

    * Failure to give the source of a quotation or paraphrase in which the language, thoughts, or ideas of another person are used as one's own. (Unit 8> Giving Credit Where Credit is Due)

    * An academic malpractice. Plagiarism is the use of the ideas, words or findings of others without acknowledging them as such.

    * Taking ideas or content from an author and portraying those ideas or content as your own.

    * Passing off someone else's work as your own. You must follow certain guidelines to properly acknowledge the use of other people's ideas in your work.

This is considered a serious offense at every institution, and can result in permanent expulsion from the class, and in some cases from the college. Cite your sources properly!

    * the act of plagiarizing; taking someone's words or ideas as if they were your own
