Plagiarism is presenting the words, ideas, or work of another as if they were your own. It can include using direct quotes without attributing them to the person who said or wrote them, and it can also include paraphrasing (stating in your own words) the ideas of another person without acknowledging that the idea belongs to someone else. Plagiarism is a serious academic offense that can have severe consequences in a person's academic and professional life.
