Plagiarism

Plagiarism is using the ideas, words or work of another person without acknowledging the source. When completing your assessment tasks you may use others material. For example, you may paraphrase someone else's words to illustrate a point. It is important that you acknowledge where this material was sourced from.

You have a responsibility to complete all assessment tasks honestly without any form of plagiarism.

CIT's Academic Misconduct Policy provides more information on the procedures to be followed if plagiarism is detected and the consequences for students.

For more information about plagiarism and how to acknowledge the source contact the staff in the Library.
