Plagiarism and SafeAssign

Plagiarism and SafeAssign

Plagiarism and SafeAssign

HDR candidates must attend this session at least once during the first 12 months of candidature (full-time equivalent).  

Plagiarism comprises not only direct copying of aspects of another person’s work but also the reproduction, even if slightly rewritten or adapted, of someone else’s ideas. In both cases, someone else’s work is presented as one's own. Explore the issue of plagiarism as it applies to higher degree by research candidates and their advisors. ‘SafeAssign’ is a text matching tool available to both staff and students at JCU. It checks submitted papers against web sources, proprietary databases and other submitted materials for matching phrases.  Using 'SafeAssign', you can submit your written work electronically and a text-matching report is generated.

This workshop has been recorded, and HDR candidates have the option of viewing the recording in LearnJCU and answering questions about the content.

In addition, an Epigeum module on plagiarism is available through LearnJCU (click here for more details).  Note that the Epigeum module does not replace the workshop conducted by Dr Lynch, either in face to face or recorded format.
