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
someone else’s knowledge. But when we rely on the
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 some academic events in which it is not

acceptable to quote or paraphrase others’ work. 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.
