Good Morning Steemians. I'm glad I'm finally making my Achievement 3 post on plagiarism here in the Newcomers Community.
What is Plagiarism?
Plagiarism in lay-man terms can simply mean copy and paste, or it could also mean copying a person's work verbatim.
Plagiarism means to steal or use ones work without permission and without giving credit to the person or the source.

There are different types of plagiarism and they include the following:
- Direct Plagiarism:
This is when a person's work is copied word for word and without attribution nor quotation marks.

This occurs when a person or student copies from his or her own previous work without permission or citation.
