“Plagiarism (either intentional or unintentional) is the using of ideas or work of another person (including experts and fellow or former students) and submitting them as your own. It is considered dishonest and unprofessional. Plagiarism may take the form of cutting and pasting, taking or closely paraphrasing ideas, passages, sections, sentences, paragraphs, drawings, graphs and other graphical material from books, articles, internet sites or any other source and submitting them for assessment without appropriate acknowledgement.” University of Sheffield, 2013)

Plagiarism is an important topic that all students are expected to take seriously
Consult the library’s Information Skills Tutorial on plagiarism to learn how to avoid it

Student services also offer information regarding plagiarism in assessments.
