To repeat something written or spoken using different words, often in a humorous form or in a simpler and shorter form that makes the original meaning clearer (Cambridge Dictionaries Online)

What is plagiarism

Is paraphrasing considered plagiarism?

Yes it is still considered plagiarism if there are to many word-for-word phrases

  • In paraphrasing, use your own words – only technical words can be repeated.

  • YOU STILL NEED TO CITE YOUR SOURCE.

What is plagiarism

There is no need to cite “common knowledge”

“current flowing through a resistor will generate heat due to i2R losses”

… is a common knowledge

“current flowing through a resistor will generate heat as well as emit

electromagnetic radiation that can cause cancer”

… is NOT a common knowledge

How to avoid PLAGIARISM?

Use citation when you use someone else’s ideas, opinions or theories

Use citation when you paraphrase someone else’s written or spoken words

Use citation whenever in doubt

Use you own ideas and phrases – this requires a thorough understanding on the subject

PLAGIARISM in MEP1422

Is increasingly being practiced by students in their assignments

Common form of plagiarism found are:

Paraphrasing (or even word-for-word copying) from papers, books, or internet without proper citation

Word-for word copying from other students of different groups (or previous students) – this is not allowed even with permission and citation

Copying diagrams without proper citation

Copying simulation results – e.g it is not normal to come up with the same values when designing controllers
