Did I Plagiarize? The Types and Severity of Plagiarism Violations

Take a look at the flow chart above from Visually.

A great tool for writers and readers alike.

Writers can use the chart to verify the authenticity of their works to ensure that they haven’t inadvertently plagiarized someone else’s work. Readers can use the chart to guide them to spot a plagiarized work.

I like the (somewhat cute) graphical index that measures the seriousness of the offense, and how thorough the assessment is, that it even checks for self-plagiarism.

Self-plagiarism? Yes, apparently, copying your own work without proper citation to said work is considered another form of plagiarism. Did you know that?

I didn’t know that either. Well, now I do.
