Follow the movement of the source, substituting words and sentences but keeping its meaning, without citing it.

Lift phrases or terms from a source and embed them in your own prose without using quotation marks and proper citation.

Borrow ideas (that are not common knowledge) form a source without proper citation.

Turn in a paper wholly or partially written by someone else.
