About Plagiarism

All students should make sure that the work they submit for assessment is their own. ACCM does not tolerate plagiarism of any kind. Any student found to have plagiarized someone else's work will be assessed as "R" (Resubmit). 

What is plagiarism? Plagiarism occurs when you use someone else's work, in part or in whole, without acknowledging them as the author or source. In other words, you are representing someone else's work as if it were your own. What are some examples of plagiarism?

•Copying other students' work
•Copying passages directly from text books, journal articles or the internet
•Summarizing someone else's words or ideas in your own words without full acknowledgment

What should I do to avoid plagiarism?

Always acknowledge the ideas, words and images which are not your own by using the appropriate referencing.
