Plagiarism occurs when you take someone else's work or ideas and pass them off as your own. While some students may intentionally copy another's work, others accidentally plagiarize simply because they didn't cite their sources correctly. Check out the resources below to make sure you aren't accidentally plagiarizing another person's work.
