What is plagiarism?

Printer-friendly version

Essentially, plagiarism is using someone else's original material without giving that person due credit for creating the material and/or passing that material off as your own original work. HSU treats academic plagiarism very seriously, which is why we use the TurnItIn software to monitor for and correct acts of plagiarism among students, researchers, and faculty.
