Plagiarism is the act of using someone else's work, ideas, or intellectual property without giving proper credit or permission and presenting it as one's own. This can include copying and pasting text, paraphrasing without proper citation, using someone else's ideas without acknowledgment, and submitting someone else's work as if it were your own. Plagiarism is considered unethical and a violation of academic integrity. TUSED has strict policies and employs iThenticate to ensure the originality of submitted articles.

Plagiarism example:

Original Source:

"The importance of renewable energy sources in mitigating climate change has been widely acknowledged. Solar power, in particular, has gained significant attention due to its sustainability and low environmental impact."

Plagiarized Version:

"The significance of renewable energy sources in addressing climate change has been widely recognized. Solar power, especially, has garnered considerable attention because of its sustainability and minimal environmental footprint."

In this example, the second version is a form of plagiarism because it closely replicates the structure and wording of the original source without proper attribution or citation. To avoid plagiarism, it is essential to use one's own words and provide proper references when incorporating information from other sources.

To ensure the evaluation of your article, please refrain from plagiarism and meticulously attend to the bibliography by providing proper citations. For more information, read the COPE’s guidelines.
