 D EPARTMENT   OF  P SYCHOLOGY . O FFICE   OF  U NDERGRADUATE  S TUDIES The Ethics of Scholarship in Psychology When engaged as a student of the field of psychology, each scholar must maintain the ethical  standards that all have pledged to uphold.  The Department of Psychology has prepared this  document to clarify its definition of academic integrity and communicate its policies related to  academic dishonesty.  Please be sure that you are aware of the following and contact your  instructor or teaching assistant with any questions that you have… The burden is on  YOU  to  make sure that you understand what plagiarism is, how to avoid it, and how to properly cite your  references.   W HAT   IS  P LAGIARISM ? Plagiarism is broadly defined as using someone else’s work, words or ideas and presenting them  as your own.  It is essentially academic theft, and a serious violation of the ethical standards that  all students should take pride in upholding.  There are three general forms of plagiarism: Direct plagiarism  occurs when someone presents another person’s work as his or her own.  For  example, copying text written by another student, posted on a website or published in a book and  submitting it for an assignment.  Whether it is a phrase or a paragraph, and even if you edit or  rearrange words, you are still stealing someone else’s work and passing it off as your own.
