A Peculiar Question

Is a database basically a gathering of information? I gathered mine from the internet, but I don't whether it is considered plagiarism or not. Is it?

  1. Here's a clear explanation of plagiarism. It doesn't make any difference whether the source is on the internet or not.


  2. If you are copying ideas, sentences, paragraphs, etc., directly from any source besides your own brain, it'll be plagiarism if you DON'T cite where you got the information from.

    Do you need directions for reference and citation?

  3. I agree, it is a peculiar question.

    A database is a collection if information, which can be later manipulated and retrieved. Gathering is only the first part.

    Now the "I gathered mine from the internet, but ..."

    I have no idea what you mean, but I suggest you read the definition of Plagiarism. Google that word.
