What is Plagiarism?

Plagiarism is presenting someone else's work or thoughts as your own.  Whether this is done intentionally or not, plagiarism is a serious offense.  Credit must be given in the form of a citation when quoting directly, summarizing, or paraphrasing the source. 

Protect yourself; when in doubt, ask your professor for guidance when citing sources in your paper.
