Note: Plagiarism will not be tolerated. If detected, the penalty may be severe

The scope of plagiarism
a) Plagiarism may be due to:
copying (using another person's language and/or ideas as if they are your own);
b) Methods include:
quoting directly another person's language, data or illustrations without clear
indication that the authorship is not your own and due acknowledgement of the
source;
paraphrasing the critical work of others without due acknowledgement even if
you change some words or the order of the words, this is still plagiarism if you are
using someone else's original ideas and are not properly acknowledging it;
using ideas taken from someone else without reference to the originator;
cutting and pasting from the Internet to make a 'pastiche' of online sources;
colluding with another person, including another candidate (other than as might be
permitted for joint project work);
submitting as part of your own report or dissertation someone else's work without
identifying clearly who did the work (for example, where research has been
contributed by others to a joint project).
