Plagiarism Education Week, April 22-26
Join Turnitin.com for an entire week of activities devoted to helping educators foster student understanding that Originality Matters.
Plagiarism is interpreted by the University as the act of presenting the work of others as ones own work, without acknowledgement.
Plagiarism is considered academic fraudulent, and an offence against University discipline. The University considers plagiarism to be a major offence, and subject to disciplinary procedures of the University. The University's full statement on plagiarism is set out in the University Calendar, Part I, 'General Regulations and Information', II, Academic progress, p63 - p71.

Every Originality Report provides instructors with the opportunity to teach their students proper citation methods as well as to safeguard their students’ academic integrity. Turnitin is also web Based so compatability between different computers and operating systems isn’t a problem.
