What is Plagiarism?
Plagiarism is the act of presenting someone else's work as your own, deliberately or by mistake. The material you use could be text, data, image, sound or performance. Your work includes essays and assignments (any, not just written ones), projects, theses,dissertations and any work, such as a presentation, work of art or performance.

The current Rhodes Plagiarism Policy and guideline is available.
" Most simply, plagiarism is intellectual theft. Any use of another author’s research,
ideas, or language without proper attribution may be considered plagiarism."
It is unethical and illegal to submit someone else's work as your own - it is the
same as stealing.
