Plagiarism is defined as the presentation of another person’s thoughts or words or artefacts or software as
though they were a student’s own. Use of unacknowledged information downloaded from the internet also
constitutes plagiarism. Any quotation from the published or unpublished works of other persons must,
therefore, be clearly identified as such by being placed inside quotation marks, and students should identify
their sources as accurately and as fully as possible.

A series of short quotations from several different sources, if not clearly identified as such, constitutes
plagiarism just as much as does a single unacknowledged long quotation from a single source. Equally, if a
student summarises another person’s ideas, judgements, figures, diagrams or software, a reference to that
person in the text must be made and the work referred to must be included in the bibliography.

As in ‘Studying Medicine at UCL’ - You should note that UCL has now signed up to use a
sophisticated detection system (Turn-It-In) to scan work for evidence of plagiarism, and the
Medical School intends to use this for assessed coursework. This system gives access to billions
of sources worldwide, including websites and journals, as well as work previously submitted to
the Medical School, UCL and other universities."
