Student Conference: Some Notes on Plagiarism


Make sure to read and understand the following

Plagiarism is the "re-use in one paper of material that has appeared in another, without appropriate acknowledgement" (Zobel, 2004, p 217).

A few clarifications to the quotation from our course textbook (Zobel, 2004) above:

Copying materials as stated above, without the consent of the owner or copyright holder, is as illegal as copying music or movies. The plain fact that materials are available for viewing on the Internet does NOT mean it is legal to copy and use them.

Make sure to read and understand the department's Honour Code. The Honour Code will be discussed in class and we will enforce academic integrity.

For more information and a few examples please check the following links.
