Types of Plagiarism

  1. 1. Types of Plagiarism  
  2. 2. Types of Plagiarism • Full plagiarism • Unintentional plagiarism • Partial plagiarism • Minimalistic plagiarism • Self-plagiarism
  3. 3. “The Copy Machine” - Sources not cited • The author submits an assignment copied word  for word from a source different from his or her  own Image from Google Images
  4. 4. "The Phantom Writer” - Sources not cited • The author uses some of his or her own words in  his or her submission, but substantial parts are  taken without modification  from a single source 
  5. 5. "The Frankenstein Paper" - Sources not cited • The author tries to pass off a work as his or her own that has been stitched together from various sources with a few words being altered here and there to try to disguise the original phrasing.
  6. 6. "Wolf in Sheep’s Clothing" - Sources not cited • The author tries to cover his or her lifting of the essential content of a source by minimally altering key words and phrases.
  7. 7. "The Lazy Man’s Prerogative" - Sources not cited • The author meticulously changes all phrases and words from one source into his or her own but neglects to cite the source.
  8. 8. "The Double-Dipper" - Sources not cited • This author reuses large amounts of work previously drafted by himself or herself. This violates originality expectations inherent to most academic institutions.
  9. 9. "The Missing Link" - Sources cited (but still plagiarized) • With this example of plagiarism, the author notes a source but does not include a specific in-text citation that leads to a reference citation that denotes the exact bibliographic information from the text. Therefore, the link between the in-text citation reference and reference page reference is broken.
  10. 10. "The Scrambler” - Sources cited (but still plagiarized) • The author scrambles information so that inaccurate information regarding the sources is noted. This makes the source impossible to find and accuracy cannot be determined.
  11. 11. "Para-Masquerade” - Sources cited (but still plagiarized) • With this example of plagiarism, the writer inserts a direct quote but tries to pass it off as a paraphrase because he or she did not put the direct quote in quotation marks but DID supply an in-text citation.
  12. 12. “The Originality MIA Factor" - Sources cited (but still plagiarized) • With this type of plagiarism, the writer accurately cites all paraphrases and gives credit where it is due, but the author neglected the requirement of submitting original work. Remember that all paraphrases should be based on excerpts from expert sources, not the entire source. Paraphrases, after being accurately cited, should also be accompanied by the writer’s personal analysis of the paraphrase.
  13. 13. "The Pass-Off" - Sources cited (but still plagiarized) • In this situation of plagiarism, large sections of the author’s work are original but interspersed within the original are sections of un-cited paraphrases. In this way, the paraphrased material is passed off as the writer’s own.
  14. 14. Which type of plagiarism do you feel deserves the harshest penalty? Did any of the types of plagiarism surprise you? What types?
