Academic Regulations
(UBC Calendar 2013/14)
According to the UBC Academic Calendar, "Plagiarism, which is intellectual theft, occurs where an individual
submits or presents the oral or written work of another person as his or her own...when another person's
words (i.e. phrases, sentences, or paragraphs), ideas, or entire works are used, the author must be
acknowledged in the text, in footnotes, in endnotes, or in another accepted form of academic citation."
Simply put, plagiarism is taking the words or ideas of another person, and submitting them without the proper
acknowledgement of the original author.
