Does chatgpt count as plagiarism

If I get someone’s text and rewrite it, does that count as Plagiarism?

Not exactly, but if you use someone’s work as a reference to build your own work, it’s always a good practice to credit them. Cite them as a reference :slightly_smiling_face:.

ChatGPT itself does not count as plagiarism. ChatGPT is an AI language model developed by OpenAI that generates text based on the input it receives and the patterns it has learned from vast amounts of data. However, using ChatGPT-generated text without proper attribution or passing it off as one’s original work without acknowledgment could potentially be considered plagiarism.

It’s important to use ChatGPT responsibly and ethically, especially in academic, professional, or creative contexts where plagiarism is a concern. If you use ChatGPT to generate text, be sure to properly cite or attribute the source, especially if you’re incorporating the generated text into written work or publications. Additionally, avoid using ChatGPT to generate content that directly copies or closely mimics existing copyrighted material without permission.

Yes, rewriting someone’s text without proper citation can still count as plagiarism, even if the words are changed. Plagiarism involves using someone else’s ideas, words, or work without giving them appropriate credit, and it can occur even with paraphrased content.

I don’t think it’s clear-cut plagiarism. ChatGPT is very new and many instructors/unis are still trying to figure out how it can fit into academic work. It’s one thing to have it create an entire essay and another to have it ‘edit’ your current work.

Rewriting someone’s text without credit is plagiarism.

Yes, it is still plagiarism to rewrite someone else’s writing and pass it off as your own without giving proper credit. This holds true even if the terms are altered but the concepts or details remain mostly unchanged from the original source.

Firstly, Plagiarism is defined as the practice of taking someone else’s work or ideas and passing them off as one’s own. Therefore, taking someone’s work rewriting it presenting it as your original work is Plagiarism because you are using someone’s ideas and opinions.
But rewriting the work but citing the sources of the ideas or information is not plagiarism.

Copying someone’s text without saying where it’s from can be plagiarism.

It’s best to mention or list where you got your ideas and information to stay out of trouble.
