Plagiarism is a serious academic offense!

"Plagiarism is the intentional offering of the words, ideas, or computer data programs and/or graphics of others for ones own in any academic exercise. Examples of plagiarism include (but are not limited to):

1. The offering of another's work, whether verbatim or paraphrased, as original material in an academic paper;

2. The offering of another's original ideas or concepts as ones own, in an academic paper or assessed exercise;

3. The inclusion of another's material in ones own work without appropriate or accurate citation or credit."
