Plagiarism: According to the Council of Writing Program Administrators, “Plagiarism occurs when a writer deliberately uses someone else’s language, ideas, or other original (not common-knowledge) material without acknowledging its source.” Any of these activities constitutes plagiarism: directly copying and pasting from a source without citation; paraphrasing from a source or sources without citation; turning in a paper, or sections of a paper, known to be written by someone other than the student; unauthorized multiple submissions of the same work in more than one course; and turning in a purchased paper.
