Plagiarism

Plagiarism is a serious issue in the American academic community.  New knowledge is built on previous ideas and knowledge, and credit must be given to those who ideas are being used.  Failure to do so and to present another's ideas as your own can result in serious consequences, including a lower or failing grade on an assignment or in a course, probation, suspension, or dismissal from the university.

Florida State University defines plagiarism as "Intentionally presenting the work of another as one's own (i.e., without proper acknowledgement of the source).  Typical examples include: Using another's work from print, web, or other sources without acknowledging the source; quoting from a source without citation; using facts, figures, graphs, charts or information without acknowledgement of the source."

- FSU Academic Honor Policy

"Regarding academic assignments, violations of the Academic Honor Code shall include representing another's work or any part thereof, be it published or unpublished, as one's own. It shall also include presenting or submitting any academic work in a manner that impairs the instructor's ability to assess the student's academic performance. For example, plagiarism includes failure to use quotation marks or other conventional markings around material quoted from any source."
