Plagiarism is passing off someone else's ideas or words as your own and is a serious offence in the academic world, even if done unintentionally. Make sure you reference everything you use that is not your own, whether words, images, photographs, music, maps, webpages, research or surveys on the web, letters and emails, etc.
