When producing a piece of written work, we need to make sure that our readers know which parts are our own work, and which parts are the work of others. The accepted way of doing this is to use a citation style like the APA style, for example.
Not to use a citation style and therefore not to attribute the work of others correctly, is to commit PLAGIARISM which is a serious offense, especially in the academic world.
