Citations and Writing Skills
The following on plagiarism is taken from the Chaminade online catalog under Institutional and Academic Policies > Accusations of Plagiarism or other forms of Academic Dishonesty:
"Plagiarism is the offering of work of another as one's own. Plagiarism is a serious offense and may include, but is not limited to, the following:
- Complete or partial copying directly from a published or unpublished source without proper acknowledgment to the author. Minor changes in wording or syntax are not sufficient to avoid charges of plagiarism. Proper acknowledgment of the source of a text is always mandatory.
- Paraphrasing the work of another without proper author acknowledgment.
- Submitting as one's own original work (however freely given or purchased) the original exam, research paper, manuscript, report, computer file, or other assignment that has been prepared by another individual."
