As a member of the Duke community, you will be contributing to the scholarly achievements of our university through your work both in and outside of the classroom. In high school you probably learned about documenting sources properly and avoiding plagiarism. Plagiarism, broadly speaking, is claiming someone else's work as your own. At the college level, plagiarism is considered to be a serious violation of academic integrity, even if it is not intentional. In the following pages you will find information on the different forms of plagiarism, proper scholarly procedure and links to helpful web sites. Following this information is an interactive exercise that you must complete to be cleared for course registration later this semester.
