What is Plagiarism?

According to BC's policy on Academic Integrity  "Plagiarism is the act of taking the words, ideas, data, illustrations, or statements of another person or source, and presenting them as one's own. Each student is responsible for learning and using proper methods of paraphrasing and footnoting, quotation, and other forms of citation, to ensure that the original author, speaker, illustrator, or source of the material used is clearly acknowledged."  Refer to BC's comprehensive Academic Integrity Policy.

Also, BCSSW's own Academic Policies and Procedures.
