Before we begin, we need to know a small amount of information about you. This is to enable us to identify if there are significantly different responses depending on your institution, course or cultural background.
Next, we need to know if you understand what "plagiarism" is.
Plagiarism is defined by Wikipedia as:
"... the practice of claiming or implying original authorship of (or incorporating material from) someone else's written or creative work, in whole or in part, into one's own without adequate acknowledgement."
We now have fifteen scenarios, each of which may, or may not, describe an instance of plagiarism taking place. Some of these are clear cut, some are grey areas
we are interested in your point of view.
If you think that the answer is Yes, but it depends on ... then please answer I think it is, but I'm not completely sure.
Thank you! This is the end of the survey. Please click on "Answer" to submit your responses.
