What is plagiarism
Is paraphrasing considered plagiarism?
To repeat something written or spoken using different words,
often in a humorous form or in a simpler and shorter form
that makes the original meaning clearer (Cambridge
Dictionaries Online)
Yes it is still considered plagiarism if there are to
many word-for-word phrases

In paraphrasing, use your own words – only technical
words can be repeated.

What is plagiarism
There is no need to cite “common knowledge”
“current flowing through a resistor will generate heat due to i2R losses”
… is a common knowledge
“current flowing through a resistor will generate heat as well as emit
electromagnetic radiation that can cause cancer”
… is NOT a common knowledge

How to avoid PLAGIARISM?
Use citation when you use someone else’s ideas, opinions or
theories
Use citation when you paraphrase someone else’s written or
spoken words

understanding on the subject

PLAGIARISM in MEP1422
Is increasingly being practiced by students in their assignments
Common form of plagiarism found are:
Paraphrasing (or even word-for-word copying) from
papers, books, or internet without proper citation
Word-for word copying from other students of different
groups (or previous students) – this is not allowed even
with permission and citation
Copying diagrams without proper citation
Copying simulation results – e.g it is not normal to come
up with the same values when designing controllers

CONCLUSION
Use your own ideas and words – after all a university is a
place where you learn to be creative, expand your
knowledge, develop your writing skills and do your
research
