Plagiarism

Quoted from “Plagiarism: What It Is and How to Avoid It”, Peter Cobbett, PhD, August
2016
“Plagiarism is copying another person’s text or ideas and passing the copied material as
your own work. …You must both delineate (i.e., separate and identify) the copied text
from your text and give credit to (i.e., cite the source) the source of the copied text to
avoid accusations of plagiarism. Plagiarism is considered fraud and has potentially
harsh consequences including loss of job, loss of reputation, and the assignation of
reduced or failing grade in a course.
Plagiarism

This definition of plagiarism applies for copied text and ideas:


I. regardless of the source of the copied text or idea;
II. regardless of whether the author(s) of the text or idea which you have copied actually
copied that text or idea from another source;
III. regardless of whether or not the authorship of the text or idea which you copy is
known;
IV. regardless of the nature of your text (journal paper/article, webpage, book chapter,
paper submitted for college course, etc) into which you copy the text or idea;
V. regardless of whether or not the author of the source of the copied material gives
permission for the material to be copied; and
VI. regardless of whether you are or are not the author of the source of the copied text or
idea (self-plagiarism).
Plagiarism

This definition also applies for figures and figure legends and for tables and table legends
which you copy into your text.”

The students must not indulge in any form of dishonesty, whether by act of omission,
including but not limited to cheating, plagiarism, knowingly furnishing false information to
RICS SBE Amity University Mumbai, and forgery or alteration

It is mandatory that each course work containing the written assignment submission shall be
checked for plagiarism through Turnitin or similar software before submission. The content
which is based on existing published work must come from properly quoted material and
from the references cited section. After checking the accuracy of the citations and
references of such content the plagiarism report should not return similarity index of more
than 15% in any circumstance. However, if the matching text is one continuous block, the
index of 15% could shall be considered plagiarism. Any report with higher than this
percentage matching must be explained by the student. The details of copy rights,
professional ethics are given in Plagiarism Prevention Policy of the University.
