Intentional Plagiarism

Intentional plagiarism is claiming sole authorship of a work that you know to have been largely written by someone else.

Examples of Intentional Plagiarism

  • Purchasing a pre-written paper (either by mail or electronically).
  • Letting someone else write part or all of a paper for you.
  • Paying someone else to write part or all of a paper for you.
  • Submitting as your own someone else's unpublished work (including a computer program or algorithm), either with or without permission.
  • Submitting as your own, work done jointly by a group in which you may have participated.
  • Submitting work done by you, but for another class or another purpose without documenting that it was previously used.
  • Creating phony citations.
