Plagiarism is the use of the ideas or words of another person as though they were your own, without authorization, attribution, or recognition, or due to failure to trace the sources properly. Plagiarism can take several types, from direct copying to paraphrasing someone else's work. We consider the following potential scenarios to determine better if an author has plagiarised:

  • An author may copy the work of another person- by copying the source word by word, in whole or in part, without authorization, acknowledgment, or attribution. This activity can be established by comparing the source and the alleged plagiaristic manuscript/work.
  • Substantial copying implies an author to reproduce a significant part of another author without permission, acknowledge, or citation. In terms of consistency as quantities, the significant concept can be interpreted, is also used in the sense of Intellectual Property. Value refers to the intrinsic worth of the text being copied in proportion to the overall function.
  • Paraphrasing includes taking thoughts, terms, or phrases from a source and turning them into new written sentences. This method becomes immoral when the author does not reference the original work/author accurately or does not remember it. This type of plagiarism is the more demanding type to detect.
