Correct citing, while sampling in your own paper is ESSENTIAL!
There is a clear difference between what citing and plagiarism is.
While citing you could make sampling, which means taking of a sample or samples and obligatory to correctly cite the original source and its authors.
Plagiarism, however, is the practice of taking someone else’s research or innovative ideas and passing them off as they are your own.
It has now become common practice for people to periphrase sentences, but keeping the meanings so they can use them for their own benefit. The act of this often resurfaces a question, “where do you draw the line between sampling and plagiarism?” If you sample other’s work too much, is your work still original? Or if you give proper recognition - is it considered acceptable?
Plagiarism is considered academic dishonesty and a breach of journalistic ethics. It is subject to sanctions such as penalties, suspension, and even expulsion from university or work. Recently, cases of "extreme plagiarism" have been identified in academia. Plagiarism is not in itself a crime, but can constitute copyright infringement.
No universally adopted definition of academic plagiarism exists. However, this section provides several definitions to exemplify the most common characteristics of academic plagiarism.
"The use of ideas, concepts, words, or structures without appropriately acknowledging the source to benefit in a setting where originality is expected." by Bela Gipp
"Uses words, ideas, or work products or Attributable to another identifiable person or source or Without attributing the work to the source from which it was obtained or In a situation in which there is a legitimate expectation of original authorship or In order to obtain some benefit, credit, or gain which need not be monetary" by T. Fishman
