Plagiarism constitutes a breach of academic integrity and represents substandard scholarship. Plagiarism can have lasting impact on the future career, regardless of whether it was intentional or not.
The responsibility to avoid plagiarism belongs with the student or researcher. Plagiarism can be avoided by learning how to correctly acknowledge any ideas, words, images, data, etc. that belong to somebody else.
