The University of Tampa's Academic Integrity Policy provides the following definition of plagiarism:
Plagiarism: Using the words, thoughts or ideas of another without attribution or the use of standard citation expectations applicable to the field of study, so that they seem as if they are your own. This type of misconduct can take many forms. The most blatant forms include copying someone else’s work word for word or turning in a paper written by another with your name as the author. Other examples include rewriting someone else’s work with only minor changes, or summarizing another’s work or taking another person’s ideas without acknowledging the source through proper attribution and citation.
Examples of plagiarism include but are not limited to:
