Deliberate plagiarism l.jpg
Deliberate Plagiarism

  • Clearly, buying, stealing, or using somebody else’s brain-power to do your work for you are all acts of deliberate plagiarism

  • You can expect the most severe of penalties

Avoid accidental plagiarism

  • You probably don’t want to get into trouble for accidental plagiarism

  • “I didn’t mean to” is not an excuse, and may be punished as severely as a deliberate act of plagiarism

Plagiarism: How to avoid it

  • Back up every claim you make

    “Experts state…” must state who the experts are!

    Being able to justify your claims (through your own data or by reference to others) will help you and not hinder you!

Plagiarism: How to avoid it

  • Acknowledge your sources of inspiration

    “Borrowing” the work of others without acknowledging their contribution is theft

    Merely listing the contribution in the bibliography without an in-line reference is seen as an attempt to deceive!

Plagiarism: How to avoid it

  • Use original phraseology, or else credit the original author

    Demonstrate that you understand by using “your own words”

    If the original states it better that you can, then quote it!

    If you rely on to many quotations, consider taking English for Academic Purposes

Plagiarism: How to avoid it

  • Do not “share” work with colleagues

    Collusion is as bad as plagiarism, it’s still a form of cheating

    The information provider/s will be in as much trouble as the information receiver/s!

    Discuss ideas, problems, possible solutions with each other by all means (and remember that lecturers were put on this planet to help you!), but the actual writing/coding should be your own individual work (unless otherwise stated)

Plagiarism and groupwork l.jpg
Plagiarism and Groupwork

  • Some assignments and APTs require you to work in groups

  • Sometimes you will submit a single piece of work as a joint report

  • Other times you will work together, but submit separate reports

  • Remember to give credit where it is due
