Use of
references Use this link as reference:

According to Dictionary Real Academia Española
“Plagiarism is the action of substantially copying other
people's works, presenting them as own creation."
Therefore, plagiarism is a serious offense;
academically speaking it is equivalent to theft. A
student who plagiarizes does not take his education
seriously, and does not respect the intellectual work
of others.

There is no small plagiarism. Using any portion of
another person's work, without acknowledging the
author or source is plagiarism. Now, it is evident that
we all take some ideas from others when it comes to
presenting ours, and that our knowledge is based on
Plagiarism someone else’s knowledge. But when we rely on the
policy work of others, academic honesty requires that we
explicitly announce the fact that we are using an
external source, either by citing or by paraphrasing
(these terms will be defined below). When we cite or
paraphrase, we clearly identify our source, not only to
give recognition to its author, but also to allow the
reader to look up in a reference text.

There are certain academic events in which it is not
acceptable to quote or paraphrase the work of others.
For instance, if a teacher assigns his or her students a
task in which they are clearly required to answer
using their own ideas and words, then the student
should not consider external sources regardless if
they are properly referenced.
