© Central Institute of Technology 2015What is Plagiarism? Plagiarism comes from the latin word ‘plagiarius’ which means kidnapper! It means taking and using another person’s work or ideas as your own and not acknowledging where the information came from. Whether deliberate or accidental, it is a form of cheating (stealing). Students who plagiarise will have to re-submit their assessments and may fail the unit. © Central Institute of Technology 2015 Clipart sourced from Microsoft
Examples of PlagiarismUsing another person’s ideas or opinions without acknowledging where the information came from. Using statistics, maps and images without acknowledging where they came from. Copying and pasting information from the internet without correct acknowledgement. Not including the sources of information used in an assignment in a Reference list. © Central Institute of Technology 2015 Image courtesy

Common Student Excuses‘I ran out of time and got desperate at the last moment’ ‘I couldn’t keep up with the workload in my course’ ‘I couldn’t do it on my own! I didn’t know enough’ ‘I can’t express myself as well as the authors can’ ‘My English is not good enough so I used the author’s words’ ‘I didn’t know how to reference correctly’ (University of Melbourne, 2014) © Central Institute of Technology 2015
Preventing PlagiarismPlagiarism can be avoided by acknowledging the sources of information used in written work. When researching, collect the details (e.g. author, year, title, publisher) of each text you read. In-text citations and a Reference list are required using the APA style of referencing. If you use graphs, tables or images you must identify where they came from. (Australia’s Health, 2012) © Central Institute of Technology 2015
© Central Institute of Technology 2015Remember! You must provide a reference whenever you use another person’s work or ideas. You do not need to provide a reference for information that is considered general or common knowledge or your own ideas. Learn how to paraphrase, summarise and quote from any information sources that you use. © Central Institute of Technology 2015
