Plagiarism is exposing another person’s thoughts or words as though they were your own, without permission, credit, or acknowledgment, or because of failing to cite the sources properly. Plagiarism can take diverse forms, from literal copying to paraphrasing the work of another. To properly 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 that is suspected of plagiarism.
  • Substantial copying implies an author reproducing a significant part of another author without permission, acknowledgment, or citation. The actual term can be understood in terms of quality as quantity, often used in the context of Intellectual property. Quality 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 needs to cite or acknowledge the original work/author properly. This form of plagiarism is the more complex form to be identified.
