“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.
