Plagiarism is presenting someone else’s words or ideas obtained from any source, including the Internet, as though they were one’s own.

Specific offences include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Using copied material without enclosing that material in quotation marks and/or without appropriately acknowledging its source;
  • Paraphrasing or summarizing the original wording too closely;
  • Omitting acknowledgement of the source of paraphrases and summaries;
  • Submitting work that has been written in full or in part by someone else.

If students have questions about the correct citation format for any aspect of their academic assessments (written or oral), they should consult their faculty and the library’s resource collection on academic integrity.
