Types of Plagiarism: Sources Not Cited "The Poor Disguise" Although the writer has retained the essential content of the source, he or she has altered the paper's appearance slightly by changing key words and phrases. "The Labor of Laziness" The writer takes the time to paraphrase most of the paper from other sources and make it all fit together, instead of spending the same effort on original work. "The Self-Stealer" The writer "borrows" generously from his or her previous work, violating policies concerning the expectation of originality adopted by most academic institutions. *www.plagiarism.orgwww.plagiarism.org
Types of Plagiarism: Sources Cited (But Still Plagiarized) "The Forgotten Works Citer" The writer mentions an author's name for a source, but neglects to include specific information on the location of the material referenced.

"The Misinformer" The writer provides inaccurate information regarding the sources, making it impossible to find them. *www.plagiarism.orgwww.plagiarism.org
A "citation" is the way you tell your readers that certain material in your work came from another source. It also gives your readers the information necessary to find that source again, including: information about the author the title of the work the name and location of the company that published your copy of the source the date your copy was published the page numbers of the material you are borrowing How NOT to Plagiarize: Use Citations
When Should You Use Citations? acknowledge their source. The following situations almost always require citation: Whenever you use quotes Whenever you paraphrase Whenever you use an idea that someone else has already expressed Whenever you make specific reference to the work of another Whenever someone else's work has been critical in developing your own ideas
MLA Format In-Text Format The author's last name and the page number(s) from which the quotation or paraphrase is taken must appear in the text, and a complete reference should appear on your Works Cited page. The author's name may appear either in the sentence itself or in parentheses following the quotation or paraphrase, but the page number(s) should always appear in the parentheses, not in the text of your sentence. *Owl at Purdue
