Introduction : Introduction Plagiarism is not always a “black-and-white” issue. The line between plagiarism and research is often unclear. Learning to recognize the different forms of plagiarism, especially the more confusing ones, is an important step in the fight to prevent it. Watch out for these forms of plagiarism… Not Citing Sources : Not Citing Sources “The Ghost Writer” The writer turns in another’s work, word-for-word, as his or her own. Not Citing Sources : Not Citing Sources “The Photocopy” The writer copies text straight from a single source, without changing it. Not Citing Sources : Not Citing Sources “The Potluck” The writer tries to disguise plagiarism by copying from several different sources, changing the sentences to make them fit together while keeping most of the original phrasing. Not Citing Sources : Not Citing Sources “The Poor Disguise” Although the writer has kept the main ideas of the source, he or she has changed the paper’s appearance a little by changing key words and phrases. Not Citing Sources : Not Citing Sources “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. Not Citing Sources : Not Citing Sources “Self-stealer” The writer “borrows” generously from his or her previous work. This violates the expectation of originality, which is a policy of most academic institutions. Sources Cited (but still plagiarism) : Sources Cited (but still plagiarism) “The Forgotten Footnote” The writer mentions an author’s name for a source, but does not include specific information on the location of the material referenced. This often masks other forms of plagiarism by hiding source locations. Sources Cited (but still plagiarism) : Sources Cited (but still plagiarism) “The Misinformer” The writer gives inaccurate information about the sources, making it impossible to find them. Sources Cited (but still plagiarism) : Sources Cited (but still plagiarism) “The Too-Perfect Paraphrase” The writer properly cites a source, but doesn’t put quotation marks around the text that has been copied paraphrased. Although crediting the basic ideas to the source, the writer falsely claims original presentation and interpretation of the information. Sources Cited (but still plagiarism) : Sources Cited (but still plagiarism) “The Resourceful Citer” The writer properly cites all sources, paraphrasing and using quotations appropriately. The catch? The paper contains almost no original work! It is sometimes difficult to spot this form of plagiarism because it looks like any other well-researched document. Sources Cited (but still plagiarism) : Sources Cited (but still plagiarism) “The Perfect Crime” Well, we all know it doesn’t exist. In this case, the writer properly quotes and cites sources in some places, but goes on to paraphrase other arguments from those sources without citation. This way, the writer tries to pass off the paraphrased material as his or her own analysis.
