Plagiarism Policy



Plagiarism in any form constitutes a serious violation of the principles of scholarship and is not acceptable. Examples of plagiarism include

  1. Word-for-word copying of portions of another's writing without enclosing the copied passage in quotation marks and acknowledging the source in the appropriate scholarly convention.
  2. The use of a particularly unique term or concept without acknowledging the original author or source.
  3. The paraphrasing or abbreviated restatement of someone else's ideas without acknowledging that another person's text has been the basis for the paraphrasing.
  4. False citation: material should not be attributed to a source from which it has not been obtained.
  5. False data: data that has been fabricated or altered in a laboratory or experiment; although not factually plagiarism, this is clearly a form of academic fraud.
  6. Unacknowledged multiple authors or collaboration: the contributions of each author or collaborator should be made clear.
  7. Self-plagiarism/double submission: the submission of the same or a very similar paper to two or more publications.
