What is it?

According to Case's Academic Integrity Policy:

"Plagiarism includes the presentation, without proper attribution, of another's words or ideas from printed or electronic sources. It is also plagiarism to submit, without the instructor's consent, an assignment in one class previously submitted in another."

All of the following practices fall under the definition of plagiarism:

  • Quoting phrases/sentences/paragraphs from a source in your paper without using quotes and providing a citation.
  • Paraphrasing an idea from a source without a citation
  • Using statistics or facts from a source (outside the realm of common knowledge) without a citation.
