What is plagiarism?
Failure to fully reference all your sources could be construed by the tutor as intentional and therefore as plagiarism.
Plagiarism is a serious academic offence. It arises when a student is suspected of presenting work undertaken by other people as if it were their own.
A student is liable to be found guilty of plagiarism if any work presented for individual assessment is found to contain the unacknowledged work of some other person or persons. If this involves deliberate misrepresentation of material as the student’s own in an attempt to deceive the examiners then the offence is very grave indeed.
All sources should be cited and all quotations from the works of other authors clearly identified as such.
If a student’s work is found to contain verbatim (or near verbatim) quotation from the work of other authors (including other students past or present) without clear acknowledgement, then plagiarism has been committed whether or not the student intended to deceive the examiners.
This rule also applies to the fraudulent provision of work by anyone for the use of another student as his/her own work.
Students will receive a 0 grade if work is deemed to be plagiarized.
If you have made use of any material that needs referencing then make sure it is referenced correctly both in the text and in the referencing section, using the Harvard method of referencing.
