2. Exact Copy Plagiarism

There are two types of exact copy plagiarism whole source and partial copy.

1. Whole source
plagiarism is claiming an entire work as your own. The most common example is when a student puts his or her name on a paper written by another person. Whole source plagiarism also includes claiming to be the creator of such things as a work of art, an entire song, or a scientific theorem. Examples of plagiarizing an entire paper include turning in as your own work:
  • a friend’s paper
  • a purchased paper
  • a paper published in another source such as a journal or the Internet
2. Partial copy plagiarism occurs when the exact words or content from a source are inserted as part of your paper without giving proper attribution. Examples include
  • cutting and pasting from an electronic source
  • copying from a printed source
  • repeating a conversation, interview remarks, etc. verbatim
  • inserting a photo, audio clip, or other multimedia element
