Most often, plagiarism arises out of misinformation, lack of good judgement or complete lack of awareness about what it is. For this reason, students need information and resources as much as they need information about policies and consequences related to academic misconduct.
If you suspect a student of plagiarism, you will want to know about:
- the resources available to you.
- the resources available for students
- UBC’s policy and process for dealing with plagiarism
- Reducing Plagiarism – UBC’s VP Academic (guidelines, links to policy docs, and reference material for faculty. Also the site for information about Turn-It-In, the online plagiarism detection system adopted by UBC.)
- Plagiarism Resource Centre for Faculty – UBC Library.
- Faculty of Arts: Academic Integrity
Resources for Students
- Plagiarism Resource Centre for Students – UBC Library.
- LEAP: Academic Integrity
- Academic Integrity: Online Tutorial – UBC’s Chapman Learning Commons
- UBC Regulation on Plagiarism
- UBC Calendar (explains what is required of the instructor in cases of suspected plagiarism. Also includes extensive information about policies, processes and appeals).
