An unacknowledged direct quotation Paraphrasing the text while retaining the author's paragraph and sentence structure.
Plagiarism is defined in the CNR school catalogs as “Taking and submitting as your own, without proper citation or credit, another person’s words or ideas, obtained from books, papers, periodicals, tables, videotapes, audio recordings, Internet messages, or other ideas or words received through the computer.” (CNR Graduate School Catalog, 2006-07, p. 31)
Examples of Plagiarism: Using someone else's paper as your own Not placing quotation marks around an author's statement Cutting and pasting from print or internet sources. Copying words or phrases without giving credit Presenting another's ideas in your own words without giving credit Retaining the author's sentence structure but changing words without giving credit Using only cited quotes and none of your own ideas Buying a pre-written paper from the internet

Common Knowledge There are areas of knowledge that are considered common to all. It is not plagiarism to state what is commonly known such as: George Washington was the first U.S. President. The earth revolves around the sun.
