Plagiarism- an act of fraud

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Plagiarism is a specific and serious form of academic misconduct, and includes:

  1. direct copying of the work of other persons, from one or more sources, without clearly indicating the origin. This includes both paper-based and electronic sources of material from websites, books, articles, theses, working papers, seminar and conference papers, internal reports, lecture notes or tapes, and visual materials such as photographs, drawings and designs
  2. using very close paraphrasing of sentences or whole passages without due acknowledgment in the form of referencing the original work
  3. submitting another student’s work in whole or in part, where such assistance is not expressly permitted in the course outline
  4. use of another person’s ideas, work or research data without acknowledgment
  5. submitting work that has been written by someone else on the student’s behalf
  6. copying computer files, algorithms or computer code without clearly indicating their origin
  7. submitting work that has been derived, in whole or in part, from another student’s work by a process of mechanical transformation (e.g. changing variable names in computer programs)
  8. in any way appropriating or imitating another’s ideas and manner of expressing them where such assistance is not expressly permitted in the course outline
