Q. Can you only plagiarize words?

Answer

According to Strayer University's Academic Integrity Policy, several acts of intellectual dishonesty are considered plagiarism (see the link for full details). The one highlighted below indicates that plagiarism includes more than words. Plagiarism could include artwork (such as art forgeries) or simply reusing someone else's chart without giving credit.

  • "Copying words or ideas from one or more sources without giving them credit and/or copying the words or ideas from one or more sources."

Plagiarism--which may be accidental--violates the Academic Integrity Policy.
