Stockholm University takes a serious view of plagiarism, i.e., the copying of other persons’ texts without clearly indicating that it is a quotation and stating the source. This is considered cheating.
Misleading references, where it is not made evident that the formulations and reasoning come from another source than the writer of the essay can lead to suspicion of plagiarism and come to be reported to the University Disciplinary Board.
If you are unsure as to what is counted as plagiarism, do make use of the aids that there are to help you avoid this offense:
The Stockholm University Library has Web based self study courses in information seeking and the scientific handling of information.
Refero - an Anti-plagiarism Tutorial. The Refero Tutorial is a Web based teaching aid developed by the Blekinge Institute of Technology & Linnaeus University Library to help academic students to understand what plagiarism is and how to avoid it.
