Plagiarism isn't always intentional. Often, it happens accidentally through improper citation.

Here are some common types of plagiarism:

  • re-use your own work
  • mix words, phrases, or ideas from uncited sources with your own words
  • mix words, phrases, or ideas from cited sources with uncited sources
  • rewrite, or paraphrase, someone else's work without proper credit
  • incorrectly or only partially credit a source
  • cite the wrong source
