Steer clear of plagiarism
Do your referencing skills feel shaky? Visit StopPlagiat.nu and steer clear of the pitfalls of plagiarism or join our mini workshop.
What is plagiarism?
Plagiarism is passing somebody else´s work off as one´s own, including failure to provide correct references. The consequences can be severe, ranging from a warning over temporary suspension to outright relegation.
Don't forget the in-text citations
It is easy to plagiarize unintentionally. If you are not careful to cite sources correctly or if you fail to cite at all, you may already be plagiarizing.
Incomplete references may also be considered plagiarism as it is essential that the reader is able to unequivocally track down the sources that you have used.
