Question and answer
Q: What is plagiarism? How is it different from the correct use of sourced information?
A: Plagiarism is defined in dictionaries as the "wrongful appropriation," "close imitation," or "purloining and publication" of another author's "language, thoughts, ideas, or expressions," and the representation of them as one's own original work. [ It is different from the correct use of sourced information because sourced information gives credit where it's due and never presents it as one's
original ideas. ]
