What is considered plagiarism at BI?
Plagiarism @ BI
“Plagiarism occurs when the work of another person, or persons, is used and presented, as one’s own, unless the source of each quotation or piece of borrowed material is acknowledged with an appropriate citation. Plagiarism is a form of theft. The free exchange of ideas depends on the participants' trust that they will be given credit for their work. Everyone in an academic community must be responsible for acknowledging their use of others’ words, research results, and ideas, using the methods accepted by the appropriate academic disciplines. “ (BI Code of Conduct)
What things can get you into trouble?
Including, but not limited to:
Copying the work of another student
Directly copying any part of another person's work
Summarizing the work of another person without acknowledgment
Using or developing an idea or thesis derived from another person's work
“Plagiarism constitutes stealing and is therefore morally wrong; plagiarism is an ethical problem in which the plagiarist violates an unwritten code of conduct for students; plagiarism is a ‘borrowing’ in which ‘credit’ is left undelivered; and plagiarism is a failure to intellectualize like a member of the academy.” (Leight, 1999, p. 221)
