Plagiarism Is Theft

At IU Kokomo, you commit plagiarism when you:

  • Summarize or paraphrase the words or ideas of another person without citing them
  • Use facts, statistics, or other factual information without citing them
  • Buy or use a term paper written by someone else
  • Cut and paste content from the Web, an e-book, or an electronic article and insert it into your paper without citing the source

Plagiarism is a serious offense. If you are caught, you may earn a failing grade on your paper, or worse, you could fail the class.
