UP Declaration Form

UP Declaration Form,
The Department places specific emphasis on integrity and ethicalbehaviour with regard to the preparation of all written work to be submitted for academic evaluation.
Although academic personnel will provide you with information regarding reference techniques as well as ways to avoid plagiarism, you also have a responsibility to fulfil in this regard. Should you at any time feel unsure about the requirements, you must consult the lecturer concerned before you submit any written work.
You are guilty of plagiarism when you extract information from a book, article or web page without acknowledging the source and pretend that it is your own work. In truth, you are stealing someone else’s property. This doesn’t only apply to cases where you quote verbatim, but also when you present someone else’s work in a somewhat amended format (paraphrase), or even when you use someone else’s deliberation without the necessary acknowledgement. You are not allowed to use another student’s previous work. You are furthermore not allowed to let anyone copy or use your work with the intention of presenting it as his/her own.
