academic dishonesty

If any words or ideas are used that do not represent your original work, you must cite all relevant sources. Words or ideas that require citation include, but are not limited to, all hard copy or electronic publications, whether copyrighted or not, and all verbal or visual communication when the content of such communication clearly originates from an identifiable source.
