In the following situations we talk about plagiarism:

  • Submitting past work
  • Paraphrasing without acknowledgement
  • Summarizing without acknowledgement
  • 'Copy' and 'paste' another person's work in your own work without acknowledgement

Plagiarism is not allowed in scientific communication.
