What is Plagiarism?

Plagiarism is using another person’s work without acknowledgement. It is a breach of academic integrity and JCU policy expressly forbids this type of behaviour.

All members of the academic community (including students and staff) must acknowledge their debt to the originators of the ideas, words, and data that form the basis for their own work.
