Students have a responsibility to uphold University standards on ethical scholarship. Good scholarship involves building on the work of others and use of others' work must be acknowledged with proper attribution made.

The software matches submitted text in student assignments against material from various sources: the internet, published books and journals, and previously submitted student texts.
