According to the CSU Undergraduate Academic Integrity Policy, "plagiarism is the taking or attempted taking of an idea, writing, a graphic, music composition, art or datum of another without giving proper credit and presenting or attempting to present it as one’s own. It is also taking written materials of one’s own that have been used for a previous course assignment and using it without reference to it in its original form" (Charleston Southern University Student Handbook 2016-2016, 11).
The term Plagiarism comes from the Latin for kidnapper (plagiarius). Therefore, just like it is wrong to kidnap a person, it is wrong to kidnap (i.e., plagiarize) someone's ideas.
|Intentional plagiarism is the theft of someone else’s ideas; it is usually easily identifiable and avoidable.||Unintentional plagiarism is harder for students to identify, usually because it is accidental.|
|Buying a paper off the internet||Paraphrasing badly by just rearranging words or sentences|
|Copying and pasting articles without quoting and/or citing||Not using quotation marks correctly|
|Having someone else write a paper for you||Leaving out information from in-text citations or bibliography|
Both are still considered plagiarism and will result in consequences!
