ABSTRACT: Plagiarism is a multifaceted and ethically a complex problemwhich simply means the stealing and publication of another author’s work as one's own original work without acknowledge the original author. Plagiarism is simply an act of fraud.Authors should acknowledge sources fully and appropriately to follow the ethics and plagiarism is failure to do so. However the students or the authors sometimes fail to acknowledge the source appropriately and properly. These failures are largely due to the lack of knowledge to use the citations properly. Therefore to maintain the ethics the plagiarism should be avoided. The aim of this paper is to define plagiarism, its type, methods of detection and the ways to avoid plagiarism.
