Plagiarism

By: Sabrina Silva

Basic Information:

Plagiarism:

Would be taking someone else's work, idea, or information, and using it as your without giving the source any credit.


Repercussions:

Before plagiarizing think of how one can be expelled from a current course, can have their work not be valid anymore, and legal action may be taken for that.


Different ways people plagiarize:

-Self Plagiarism, where one uses their old works from pervious classes and uses them again.

-Accidental Plagiarism, when one person does not cite the sources used for their work that was created.

-Direct plagiarism, where word for word is copied from another source.


Why Plagiarizing is not good:

-It takes away credit from the original creator.

-It makes your work seem untrustworthy

-One does and illegal thing; breaking a law.
