Is it Plagiarism?

"Plagiarism is the practice of (dishonestly) claiming or implying original authorship of material which one has not actually created, such as when a person incorporates material from someone else's work into his own work without attributing it."

"In the academic world: Plagiarism is a serious academic offense which can result in punishment ranging from a failing grade on the particular assignment, or the course, leading cumulatively to an academic suspension or expulsion. Being found guilty of plagiarism can ruin an academic career; it may result in revocation of one's degree, or the loss of one's job, and will result in the loss of academic credibility.“

You read:

“Technology has significantly transformed education at several major turning points in our history. In the broadest sense, the first technology was the primitive modes of communication used by prehistoric people before the development of spoken language. Mime, gestures, grunts, and drawing of figures in the sand with a stick were methods used to communicate -- yes, even to educate. Even without speech, these prehistoric people were able to teach their young how to catch animals for food, what animals to avoid, which vegetation was good to eat and which was poisonous.”

You read:

"During the 1848 cholera epidemic, John Snow mapped out the locations of cholera cases and demonstrated that the epidemic raging in London was not evenly distributed across the city. This observation led to the identification of different water sources from commercial water suppliers, and eventually to the act of removing the handle from the Broad Street pump that was delivering contaminated water downstream of London from the Thames. Cholera cases declined in the surrounding area."

From: Bassett MT. Public Health Advocacy. American Journal of Public Health 2003;93(8): 1204.

You write:

By mapping out cases of cholera that were centered around different water sources, John Snow identified the cause of the London cholera outbreak as the public water pump on Broad Street.

Is it Plagiarism?

"Plagiarism is sometimes difficult to avoid in writing, because writers are not always consciously aware of the source of the wording , or the source of the idea. To ensure that a writer will avoid plagiarism, it is necessary to keep track of the sources used, and record them accurately. In past years, when students copied extracts from books onto index cards or notebooks by hand, it was customary both to rephrase the idea, so it could be used in the authors words and properly credited, and also copy what seemed to be useful quotations, so they could be quoted with a proper source. In working with photocopy or print out, it is normally easier to mark the pages, usually with different color pens or markers. When working with computer files on the screen, it is advisable to employ the annotation or comment features of the software. In any case, it is necessary to ensure that the notes are clear, that the photocopied of downloaded material includes the name and date of the source; that when working with online material, the date and URL are always recorded. The use of bibliographic software, such as Endnote or Reference Manager can be helpful in keeping track of the material.“
