Summary/Abstract: Plagiarism has not been defined in Serbian legislation. The law defines the work of authorship as an original intellectual creation made in a specific form. As a defining feature, originality implies that a new work of authorship should be sufficiently authentic and distinctive in order to be differentiated from other existing works of authorship. In copyright law, plagiarism is not reflected in taking facts from another’s work of authorship but rather in appropriating those features that make the work a distinctive intellectual creation. In scientific work, given the inevitable and obligatory compliance with referencing and citation guidelines, the issue of plagiarism raises questions of scientific discursive texts including transeferable skills and the use of widely accepted “general references“ which are already wellestablished and grounded in previous works of authorship.
