Educational Integrity 

Whilst your answers need to be based on the set readings, they must be in your own words, ie, paraphrased. Where you do paraphrase others be sure to cite the relevant reference,  including the page number, to indicate/acknowledge that it is not your work/research/thinking  but that of someone else. Do not quote verbatim (ie word-for-word) from the readings unless  you are absolutely unable to make the same argument in your own words. If you must quote a  small passage verbatim use quotation marks to indicate they are not your words/writing and,  as always, cite the relevant reference, including the page number, at the end of the sentence. 

In short, when you use the ideas/research/arguments of others in your writing without  acknowledging whose intellectual property they are with an in-text citation, eg (Wedgwood  2057), that is a form of academic dishonesty. While the University is aware that the vast  majority of students and staff act ethically and honestly, it is opposed to and will not tolerate  academic dishonesty or plagiarism and will treat all allegations of dishonesty seriously. For  more information on academic honesty/dishonesty go to the academic integrity pages on the  Current Students website.
