Role of English
How to Solve It
Plagiarism is strictly forbidden; anyone attempting it may fail the course and/or face administrative or classroom disciplinary action.
Undergraduate Handbook - Istanbul Bilgi University
Plagiarism means "to use and pass off (the ideas or writings of another) as one's own; to appropriate for use as one's own passages or ideas from (another); or to put forth as original to oneself the ideas or words of another" Dictionary.com.
Beyond that, "plagiarism, a form of intellectual dishonesty, involves unintentionally using someone else's work without properly acknowledging where the ideas came from (the most common form of plagiarism) or intentionally copying someone else's work and passing it off as your own (the most serious form of plagiarism) (Palmquist, 2003, www.bedfordresearcher.com, pp. 173-174)".
I will check for plagiarism examples and will publicly point them out the first time I catch them and try to explain why they are plagiarized and therefore not acceptable for any credit at all. If these offending documents are not completely rewritten, the person plagiarizing may also fail the project, the course and/or face disciplinary action.
