Policy on Academic Dishonesty



All written compositions in this course must be your own work and your own words, unless you are using explicitly indicated quotations. Accord with the following rules precisely, and in all your written work:
-- If you use the words of another person, always use quotation marks and indicate the source of the quote.
-- If you closely paraphrase another person, always indicate that you are doing so and whose ideas you are citing.
-- Make sure never to submit work with plagiarized material; always acknowledge your sources.
-- Never fabricate sources or quoted material.
Failure to follow these rules is considered plagiarism, which is serious academic misconduct and subject to severe penalties under university regulations.
