- Plagiarism is using the words, ideas, or expressive works of another person as if they were your own without proper attribution.
- It does not have to be intentional.
- Copying the words of another person and presenting them as your own even if you provide a citation can still be plagiarism.
Can you plagiarize yourself? Copying or reusing material from previously written papers you submitted in another class and turning it in as if it were new work is also a form of academic misconduct.
