Everyone knows what plagiarism is - or do they? What do you think plagiarism is?
The answer is all of the above!
Plagiarism is taking credit for someone else's words or ideas, intentionally or unintentionally. This is not as simple as it sounds. In the above examples, some are deliberate actions, but others could happen unintentionally if you don't completely understand the concept of plagiarism, or if you are simply careless. This is no excuse! It is your responsibility to know exactly what constitutes plagiarism.
