Plagiarism

HDR candidates must complete this module 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.
