Cooperation or plagiarism?
- Assignments are to be completed individually, unless group work is explicitly indicated.
- The lecturer responsible decides on group composition and changes to it in cases of group work. The work must be carried out by the members of the group.
- Assignments and how to understand them may be discussed in general terms with outsiders but concrete help with solutions is not permitted.
- Copying solutions from other students or groups, in whole or in part, is not permitted. Nor is it permitted to copy from books or sources on the internet.
- When quoting other sources, information on these must be provided.
- Considerable help to complete an assignment from anyone other than a lecturer on the course must be described in the report or in some other way. This is also the case when aids have been used that the lecturer cannot be expected to know about.
- Departments are entitled to supplement these regulations in writing at the beginning of a course in, for example, course descriptions.
- Students who use prohibited aids may be suspended from all education at Lund University for a period of up to 6 months.
At the Department of Computer Science the following supplements/clarifications apply:
- The rules above are applied to all compulsory course items, i.e., also for laboratory work and and projects.
- When course items are to be carried out in groups all members of the group must participate.
- It is not necessary to describe help from anyone with using computer systems or provided software in reports.
The department apply the above rules in all courses. If we have reason to suspect breach of rules it will be reported to the disciplinary board of the university. If the disciplinary board finds that the student has committed an offence she/he may be suspended from all education in Lund University for a period of up to 6 months.
