Plagiarism Policy

           The RJSIMRF defines plagiarism as, “submitting as one’s own work, irrespective of intent to deceive, that which derives in part or in its entirety from the work of others without due acknowledgement; or, in the case of self-plagiarism, unless explicitly permitted by regulation, submitting one’s own work that has already been submitted for assessment to satisfy the requirements of any other academic qualification, or submitted for publication without due acknowledgement. It is both poor scholarship and a breach of academic integrity.”

           You are responsible for ensuring that you have read and understood the Research Foundation plagiarism definition and guidance and follow it in all work submitted for assessment.

           If, after reading the guidance, you have any outstanding queries you should seek clarification at the earliest opportunity from the RPC Committee Director.

Turnitin software

           The RJS Research Foundation subscribes to Turnitin text-matching software, which is widely used in UK universities and matches text of submitted work to sources in its database, which is made up of internet content, selected journals, and previous student submissions.

           All assignments submitted for assessment are screened using Turnitin.

           The software makes no judgment about whether a student has plagiarized; it simply shows the percentage of the submission that matches other sources and produces an originality report which highlights the text matches and, where possible, displays the matching text and its immediate context.

           In many cases the software highlights correctly cited references or ‘innocent’ matches. Therefore, all originality reports will be carefully reviewed to determine whether matches may indicate wider concerns around poor scholarly technique or an attempt to gain unfair advantage, and whether any further action should be taken.
