What is plagiarism? A simple definition is using someone else’s work as your own without giving proper credit.

Whether intentional or unintentional, plagiarism is never a good idea, and it is relatively easy for instructors to identify plagiarism. The good news is that it’s easy to avoid plagiarism and cite other people’s work!
