Plagiarism exposes another person’s thoughts or words as though they were your own, without permission, credit, or acknowledgement, or because of failing to cite the sources properly. Plagiarism can take diverse forms, from literal copying to paraphrasing the work of another. To accurately judge whether an author has plagiarized, we emphasize the following possible situations:

  • An author can copy another author’s work- by copying word by word, in whole or in part, without permission, acknowledging or citing the source. This practice can be identified by comparing the source and the manuscript/work suspected of plagiarism.
  • Substantial copying implies that an author can reproduce a significant part of another author without permission, acknowledgement, or citation. The actual terms can be understood both in terms of quality and quantity, being often used in intellectual property. Condition refers to the relative value of the copied text in proportion to the work as a whole.
  • Paraphrasing involves taking ideas, words, or phrases from a source and crafting them into new sentences within the writing. This practice becomes unethical when the author does not properly cite or acknowledge the original work/author. This form of plagiarism is the more severe form to be identified.
