Statement on academic honesty

Research should be used in an ethical manner. The Morgan State University Statement on academic honesty can be found in the University Catalog.

Plagiarism is theft. Plagiarism is submitting, either orally or in writing, the words, ideas, drawings, or other works of another person as one’s own without appropriate citation in order to receive credit for having completed an academic assignment or exercise.
Examples: Examples of plagiarism include, but are not limited to, the following:

a. Submitting material or work for evaluation, in whole or in part, which has been prepared by another student, an author of a published article or textbook, or by persons producing papers for profit;

b. Using a direct quote from another student’s papers or from an author of a publication without including the appropriate citation;

c. Paraphrasing or summarizing another’s work without including the appropriate citation;

d. Using information stored electronically e.g., submission of papers and or information found on computer disks, the Internet, etc., without including appropriate citation and/or acknowledging the source.
