what is plagiarism
type of plagiarism
Are: Complete plagiarism
Source - based plagiarism
Self or auto plagiarism
Complete plagiarism: This type of plagiarism occurs when someone tries to submit an entire research paper as their own without proper attribution.
For example, this involves copying and pasting the original work in its exact words. The only thing that is changed is the author’s name.
Source -base plagiarism: The worst type of this kind of plagiarism is when sources are fabricated. Making up information like study findings or statistics is extremely misleading and can even be harmful in the case of medical content.
Direct plagiarism: is an intentional and unethical form of stealing content. As the name suggests, the writing is stolen word for word and pasted into the new piece. The author then tries to pass off the content as their own. A word or two might be changed, but this type of plagiarism is too blatant to be considered paraphrasing.
Self or auto plagiarism: this nature of plagiarism
happens when you copy your own writing, whether intentional or not. Often the person in a self-plagiarism incident is summarizing or repurposing their own work instead of writing a whole new piece from scratch on the same topic.
Many people think self-plagiarism is harmless because you aren’t stealing from someone else. Just yourself. But, this type of plagiarism can be just as damaging as any other.
For example, if you are writing web pages and you are caught plagiarizing, you could end up getting penalized by Google for duplicate content.
Paraphrasing plagiarism : is the most common type of plagiarism. It’s similar to the mosaic plagiarism style. However, the difference is that the copied work isn’t mixed in with new concepts and research. When you paraphrase the original idea in your own words, the borrowed material stays the same throughout the new piece.
Mosaic plagiarism :With this type of plagiarism, the work of someone else is simply paraphrased without proper citation. It’s often difficult to detect because the plagiarized material is interwoven with many different sources, including the writer’s own ideas and perspective.
Accidental plagiarism: this nature of plagiarism
doesn’t always happen on purpose. It’s still considered plagiarism when someone copies another’s writing without citing their source, improperly cites the source or leaves out quotation marks on accident. Just because the omission or incorrect citation was accidental doesn’t mean plagiarism hasn’t been committed. This is why it’s important to check any work and when in doubt, give your source credit.
