Plagiarism is the practice of taking credit for someone else’s work.

Plagiarism is the unethical practice of taking credit for someone else’s work. It is a major concern both in research, where the most common issue is improper use of citations (or lack thereof), and in coursework assignments.

Self-plagiarism refers to reusing one's own previously published work (or previously used coursework), without properly citing it as such.
