HUM - Green: About Plagiarism

Subject-related sources, websites, and information.

What is plagiarism?

Presenting someone else's ideas as your own, intentionally (on purpose). What do we mean by intentionally?

  • Buying (pen for hire), stealing, borrowing.
  • Cutting/copying/pasting and forgetting to enclose in quotation marks and provide an in-text citation and a citation at the end of your paper.
  • Submitting a paper you submitted for another class. Always ask your instructor before you do this!
