Do You Know What Counts as Plagiarism?

As stated by Concordia’s Academic Calendar, plagiarism includes:

  1. “The use of the ideas, structures, of argument, or phrases of others without appropriate acknowledgement.”
  2. “Ideas 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.”
  3. “Phrases borrowed from others must be identified as quotations and fully attributed.”
  4. “Plagiarism ranges from the submission by a student of an entire essay or project which 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.
