Avoiding Plagiarism

In your courses you can use extracts of written works, images, both on paper and on digital media. Plagiarism is the act of reproducing significant content from another work and presenting it as one's own. Plagiarism occurs when material from external sources is incorporated without properly acknowledging the reference or providing incomplete details about the source, hindering its traceability.

before submitting a paper use compilatio


Use Compilatio, a software platform designed for detecting plagiarism in academic and professional documents. It is commonly used in educational institutions to ensure the integrity of submitted papers, essays, and other written assignments. Compilatio works by comparing the text of a submitted document against a vast database of academic content, including books, articles, and other students' work. It identifies potential instances of plagiarism and generates a report for educators to review. We encourage you to use Compilatio to scan your papers before submission. The library will then generate a compilation report and send it to you. It's a way to enhance your papers, as plagiarism can sometimes occur unintentionally. Submit it here

cite properly

In the context of citing, an extract refers to a portion or section of a text that is taken directly from the original source. When you include an extract in your writing, it's crucial to properly cite it to give credit to the original author and avoid plagiarism. Citations typically include information such as the author's name, the publication date, and the page number(s) from which the extract is sourced. The specific format of the citation can vary depending on the citation style (e.g., APA, MLA, Chicago) you are using.
