Academic Integrity (Note to avoid Plagiarism)

 

Academic integrity is a fundamental expectation for all college/university students

and while it is acknowledged that mitigating circumstances might be raised as factors in student behaviour, cheating cannot be disregarded. GBS definition of plagiarism, as contained in GBS Academic Good Practice and Academic Misconduct Policy and Procedure has been expanded to make explicit that copying from texts or web sources and copying work from other students constitutes plagiarism.

“Plagiarism is the act of taking or copying someone else’s work, including another student, and presenting it as if it were your own. Plagiarism is said to occur when ideas texts,

theories, data, created artistic artefacts or other material are presented without acknowledgement so that the person considering this work is given the impression that what they have before them is the student’s own original work when it is not.

Plagiarism

also occurs where a student’s own work is re-presented without being properly referenced. Plagiarism is a form of cheating and is a disciplinary offence.”

Plagiarism is easy to avoid by making sure you reference all the sources of material that you use in the completion of your work. Pearson has developed Guidelines on Harvard Referencing which are available in Academic Support Area for Students on Moodle (VLE) as well as on respective unit pages.

If you are concerned about referencing techniques, please draw the matter to your Unit Lecturer or Academic Support Team on academicsupport@globalbanking.ac.uk so that you may receive extra advice.

Group coursework may be designed so that the contribution of each student is identified but inclusion of plagiarised material is still the responsibility of the whole group.

All members of the group should exercise vigilance to ensure that work is properly referenced; in group- work, students have a shared responsibility for the assignment.
