After reading several book chapters and articles on the fall of the Roman Empire for a Western Civilization class, you decide that none of them considered climate change. You put climate change in as your thesis statement about the fall without any citations. Plagiarism Not Plagiarism You are supposed to have 9 sources for a paper. You only use 7 in your research, so you enter in 2 additional sources you didnt actually use in your bibliography. Plagiarism Not Plagiarism
As you are writing a paper, you copy and paste into MSWord from different online journals, books and web pages. You go back and reword a lot of what you copied and rearrange the information so it makes sense. Since you have changed a good percentage of what you brought into your paper, you decide not to cite the sources. Plagiarism Not Plagiarism Its the night before a paper is due and you have a quote in your paper that is really good, but you cant find the book or article where you got it. You decide to pass the quote off as your own idea and not cite it. Its just one quote, after all. Plagiarism Not Plagiarism
