    Would publishing the essays I write in school on hubpages get me in trouble for plagiarizing?

    I haven't had time to write for hubpages lately because I have been swamped with school work, like essays. So would it get me in trouble if I published them on here? Or should I just wait until after the semester ends?

    I don't think so, If you are the original Author of the writings

    If the essays are yours and they haven't been published anywhere online I see no plagiarism at all.

    No not really. You are the owner of the content and no way could they accuse you of such a thing. Specially when its online published on  public place that has you as the author and creator. But waiting for the semester to end is really not a bad idea. At last you will save yourself from the initial trouble which could be considered as a misunderstanding later on.

    Hi Ashley,
    As long as the essays are written by you, you won't get in any trouble for plagiarizing.  I'm sure the community would love to read your work!  Your essays may need a once over to make them more "online-friendly".  Writing online is different than writing for a class.  If you want people to find your essays, they will need a title that could be found on a search engine.  I'm looking forward to reading your work!

    No, the essays are yours. You wrote them. You can only plagiarize if you're copying work that is not your own. That said, I generally wait until the end of the semester to publish content written for a class on the Internet. This is because, although they are legally my essays and papers, I don't want to get mixed in the confusion of some teacher mistaking my HubPages account with some other random person on the Internet. Then I'd have to go through the trouble of proving that it is my account.

    If you are the original author of the work you should be fine.  You can publish your own work where ever you like and that should be OK.

    Not if they are your essays.  Plagiarizing is a term that refers to thieving someone else's work.  I'll bet that you can find sources to site and put those into link capsules on your hubs :-D

    Publish them after you submit them in school.  If your school requires you to submit your essays via a service like turnitin.com, it will look for similarities with other work online to check for plagiarism.  Even though it's your work, the person who checks your paper out of hundreds of other papers probably won't investigate that much and will just pull the trigger on you for plagiarism.  Then the process of showing that it's your work, that you didn't copy it, and explaining the situation ensues.  Long story short, it's not illegal, it can just be a headache for you because of a misunderstanding.  Best bet would be to publish your stuff on Hubs after your teachers grade and return your papers to avoid any misunderstandings and unnecessary snags.

    I think that this is fine.  Plagarizing would only be an issue if you published someone else's work.  However, HubPages does not allow you to publish work if it has been published elsewhere (for example, a blog).

    It is my opinion that Hubpages will call you out for 'duplicate' content if you have published them anywhere else on the internet regardless of whether they are yours or not!
    If that happens your Hubscore will more than likely be penalized!
    My suggestion is that if you have not published them anywhere else, put them up as Hubs and give us a look at them.
    Good luck Ashley with all your studies :-)

    As long as it's your essay - it's ok to publish it. The essay is yours and you are free to do whatever you want.
    In fact, some people do that, probably because they were top graded.
    Here is the kit of top graded essay for example goo.gl/uSdaN
