Any act of plagiarism and collusion will be seriously dealt with according to the regulations. In this context the definition and scope of plagiarism are presented below:
Plagiarism is defined as the act of using the work of others, intentionally or unintentionally, without acknowledging the source of that information or inspiration. “Even if the words are changed or sentences are put in a different order, the result is still plagiarism” (Cortell, 2003).
Collusion is described as the submission of work produced in collaboration with others for any given assignment based on the assessment of individual work when one person shares his/her work with others who submit part or all of that work as their own work.Critically evaluate, analyse and interpret subject-specific information from a wide range of appropriate sources In this assignment, it is acceptable to discuss various ideas and concepts with others, but the substantive application and coverage in your submission must be your own work.
Any information or work that is not yours needs to be referenced as per the Harvard Referencing System or else may be considered as plagiarism. Copying from someone’s work can be unintentionally done if you are unaware of the rules for acknowledging and referencing direct quotations.
The Harvard system of citation requires you to use a given convention that places primarily the authors’ surnames and year of publication within the text.
According to Bell (1999), as you write your report, you will use a citation to indicate in your text the source of the information. This is called in-text referencing.
The authors and publication information cited within the main body of your work must be listed in the reference list. For example:
Bell, J.; (1999), ‘Doing your Research Project’, (3rd Ed), Buckingham: Open University Press.
Critically evaluate, analyse and interpret subject-specific information from a wide range of appropriate sources. Detailed guidance on the Harvard Referencing System (HRS) is available on the Virtual Learning Environment (VLE).For further details and guidelines on Harvard Referencing, visit the following link: http://tinyurl.com/jtq47gm or follow the instructions on Harvard Referencing Guide provided by London Met University Library
