Academic Honesty & Plagiarism

The University of Chicago’s Student Manual defines academic honesty and plagiarism as submitting “another’s statements or ideas as one’s own work. To do so is plagiarism or cheating, offenses punishable under the University's disciplinary system.”[1] But while many people may think of plagiarism as an intentional act, such as knowingly turning in a paper written by someone else, it can also occur accidently through sloppy research and writing practices, or a lack of awareness of when and how to acknowledge sources.
