Plagiarism. Plagiarism is the act of representing the words, ideas, research, or works of another as one's own. Plagiarism can involve submitting work prepared entirely or in part by another person or commercial service or borrowing material as direct quotation, partial quotation, or paraphrase from published or unpublished sources without proper acknowledgment. Students must appropriately document all print, online, and oral sources they use to complete assignments.
