The article explores the concept of plagiarism. The Latin meaning of plagiarism is kidnapper or plagiarius. It is defined as the presentation of the work of another person as one's own or without proper acknowledgment. Some possible reactions after being caught for plagiarism include silence, denial, evasion and rationalization. To avoid committing plagiarism, some guidelines are suggested including using one's own words and ideas and giving credit for copied or paraphrased material.
