As stated by CUE’s Academic Calendar:
- Plagiarism is the use of the ideas, structures of argument, or phrases of others without appropriate acknowledgement.
- Ideas and lines of argument borrowed from others, even when expressed in the student’s own words, must be fully identified, in a format customary in the discipline, as specified by the instructor.
- In addition, phrases borrowed from others must be identified as quotations and fully attributed.
- Plagiarism ranges from the submission by a student of an entire essay or project which was in fact done by someone else to the inclusion in a paper of a phrase which is not properly quoted or documented, even though the source may be included in the list of works cited.
Whether or not these actions are intentional or unintentional, they still count as plagiarism.
