What is plagiarism
Plagiarism is a sensitive topic to address, primarily because when we talk about plagiarism, we should talk about academic honesty. When we conduct our science, and write up our paper honestly, we avoid the trap of plagiarism all together. The same applies when we consider that the writing we produce is a long process that includes thinking, planning, reading, ideating, drafting, writing, revising, reviewing, more revising and finally editing, we should not even have to consider plagiarism an issue that needs attention.
However, given that we are not always sure what constitutes academic honesty, or what constitutes plagiarism, it’s good to define what it is, so we can understand when something in our text has been plagiarized and when it has not.
There are many guides to better understand plagiarism. However, there is one comprehensive online tutorial, compiled by Simon Fraser University Library, which will make you understand and avoid plagiarism in 30 minutes.
