International Students / EAL: (a) What Is Plagiarism?

A library research guide for international students.

What Is Plagiarism?

Plagiarism occurs when you make use of the ideas and work of someone else without proper acknowledgement or present them as your own. It is regarded as cheating and can be intentional or unintentional. Plagiarism includes:

·         Copying any material from print, the Internet or any AV source, including books, periodicals, newspapers, study notes or tapes, CD’s, DVD’s, music, the work of other students or any other source without acknowledgement

·         Rewording, rephrasing or paraphrasing ideas from print, the Internet or any AV source, including books, periodicals, newspapers, study notes or tapes, CD’s, DVD’s, music, the work of other students or work from any other source without acknowledgement.

·         Collaborating (working together) with other students without permission from your teacher in producing an assessment task.
