You’re likely familiar with the term “plagiarism.” We’re taught, early in our education, that plagiarism is copying someone else’s work and claiming it as our own. Sounds simple enough, right? The reality is, there are many ways of being dishonest about the work we produce and giving appropriate credit to whom the original work belongs. The next time you write a paper, make sure you’re keeping your citation standards high. Don’t allow yourself to succumb to any of the thirteen possible ways to plagiarize.
