Types of plagiarism[edit]

As you saw in the video, there are three basic types of plagiarism:

  • Unattributed plagiarism, where you copy text and don't credit the author.
  • Plagiarism of cited sources, where you copy text exactly (even when you credit the author).
  • Close paraphrasing, where you just slightly change the text of another author (cited or not).
