Notes on Plagiarism:

  • A writer who presents the ideas or words of another as if they were the writer's own (that is, without proper citation) commits plagiarism. Plagiarism is not tolerable in this department or at H.K.U. Consult the websites: http://ec.hku.hk/plagiarism and http://www.hku.hk/plagiarism for further information. You should avoid making quotes or drawing on figures from nowhere - you must provide sources of reference for quotation and/or citations you use in the paper. This applies to images and media clips as well. Failure to observe this would risk being charged of plagiarism. In this University, plagiarism is a disciplinary offence. Any student who commits the offence is liable to disciplinary action).
