Accidental Plagiarism is a form of plagiarism that occurs when an author fails to correctly cite or quote another authors work, or even phrases their writing to be the same style as it was already formed in.
What happens if I do it?
Like the punishment for the other forms of plagiarism, you can get docked points, get canceled for not being a reliable author and so on.
Wow, you know a lot about this! Any ideas on how I avoid this form of plagiarism?
Of course, you should always double and triple check your work. Always remember to quote works that aren't yours and use your own words as it is supposed to be your work.
