Cite right - concerning academic integrity

A self-study guide from the University Library


This self-study guide aims to give you an idea about what academic integrity means and what plagiarism is and how to avoid it. We also hope that the guide will encourage you to learn more about citing other people’s work and ideas.


How to proceed

In the menu on the left there are some tabbed pages to go through. The pages contain various aspects of plagiarising, referencing, citing and about copyright. We recommend you to start with “Academic Integrity” and then go through the following pages in descending order. It will take you about 30 minutes to go through the guide and at the end it will be concluded with a couple of quizzes to check what you have learnt.

Good luck!
