structure) Plagiarism

Plagiarism is copying or rewriting what another person has written and then publishing or submitting this as your own original work. It is cheating.

The consequences of your dishonesty being discovered will be various. At the very least you will lose your credibility. Because you have cheated once, teachers will be reasonably suspicious that you will do it again. This will become part of your academic record.

You will be more successful both as a student and as a person if you readily acknowledge that you learn from other people and other sources.

Therefore, whenever you use information or material directly copied from another source, ensure that you state clearly who and where the information is from and provide some reference to this ie (Bond, J, page 007). Acknowledge this later in your references.

See Indiana University:

You define what you are as a person by your choices. Choose to use someone else's work as though it is your own is and you are choosing to be treated as dishonest and untrustworthy.
