History Department Plagiarism Policy

The History Department's Policy


The History Department assumes that all work is your own. Any words or ideas that you take from another source, including lectures or outside ​assistance, need to be acknowledged or cited. Not doing this is considered plagiarism. Plagiarism includes absence of attribution when quoting sources; ​rewording another person’s ideas and implying they are your own; utilizing the argument or structure of a text without citation; attempting to conceal the degree to which a source has been used; obtaining work from a website and submitting it as your own; and submitting the work of another student, with or without that student’s permission. 


Plagiarists may face failure of the specific assignment, failure of the entire course, and referral for University discipline, which may result in suspension or expulsion.

As these rules merely reflect common sense and ethics, ignorance cannot mitigate the plagiarist’s culpability. For further clarification of the issue, see the University’s Academic Honor Code or the American Historical Association’s Statement on Standards of Professional Conduct.

My answers are the products of my own scholarship and analysis in response to the questions asked. I have not pasted in or used portions of my previous work. I have not referred to any books or articles or used the Internet during the exam, but understand that I could consult the reading lists for my fields. No other person has assisted me in writing these exam answers. I have not copied or otherwise used another person’s unpublished scholarship, including course notes, reading notes or papers; nor have I, without proper scholarly attribution, quoted, paraphrased, or otherwise relied on any published works in preparing my examination answers.
