Academic honesty and plagiarism

Posted: June 19th 2014


Plagiarism is using the words or ideas of others and presenting them as your own. It
can take many forms, from deliberate cheating to accidentally copying from a
source without acknowledgement.

Plagiarism is grouped into the following categories:

• Copying: using the same or very similar words to the original text or idea without
acknowledging the source or using quotation marks. This also applies to images, art
and design projects, as well as presentations where someone presents another’s
ideas or words without credit.

• Inappropriate paraphrasing: changing a few words and phrases while mostly
retaining the original structure and information without acknowledgement. This also
applies in presentations where someone paraphrases another’s ideas or words
without credit. It also applies to piecing together quotes and paraphrases into a new
whole, without referencing and a student’s own analysis to bring the material

• Collusion: working with others but passing off the work as a person’s individual work.
Collusion also includes providing your work to another student before the due date, or
for the purpose of them plagiarising at any time, paying another person to perform an
academic task, stealing or acquiring another person’s academic work and copying
it, offering to complete another person’s work or seeking payment for completing
academic work.

• Duplication: submitting your own work, in whole or in part, where it has previously
been prepared or submitted for another assessment or course at any academic institution.
