What is plagiarism? Plagiarism is a word that we use for describing when someone copies or steals someone else's writings, thoughts, pictures, language or ideas to claim them as their own.
When you do research, in order to avoid plagiarism, make sure that you put ideas into your own words and give credit for other's ideas, pictures or art by citing their work.
By the way, the picture used here was borrowed from https://blogs.egu.eu/network/water-underground/2018/06/22/how-can-we-make-hydrogeology-free-from-plagiarism-reflections-five-years-after-a-documented-case-of-plagiarism-in-the-hydrologic-sciences/ so we would cite it like this,
