FeedForward comments: Plagiarism

This guide is for use by lecturing staff, providing you with feedback comments and information sheets for your students

Whether you use a paraphrase or a quote, any definition, idea, argument or information taken from another source must be referenced. Not acknowledging the source of something is called plagiarism. Click here for more information.
