ACADEMIC HONESTY
& PLAGIARISM
What is the
meaning of
honest (adjective) or
honesty (noun) ?
An honest person is
someone who does not
lie, cheat or steal.
An honest person
always tells the truth.
Academic honesty
refers to things that
happen at a school
or college.
An honest student
does not cheat or steal the
academic work of others.
What are
some examples of
cheating?
If a student gets answers to test questions
from another student, this is cheating.
If a student copies another student’s
project, this is cheating.
Go to the online
Student Handbook
for more information
about cheating.

What about
copying from a
book or a website
without crediting
the source?
This kind of cheating
is called PLAGIARISM. It is
stealing the words or ideas of
another person.
Here are details from
the Student Handbook.
Let’s look at this
more carefully.
Examples of plagiarism may include but are not
limited to the following 3 situations only.
Anytime you copy and do not note the source(s)
of the information, you are plagiarizing.
‫هذه بعض االمثله للغش و لكن غير محدودة على هذه األنواع فقط‬
‫إذا حاولت في أي وقت اخذ أي مصدر من غير أن توثقه فهذا يعتبر غش‬
Plagiarism is : using the work
of someone else, or changing
some words and keeping the
same structure and the same
meaning without noting the
source(s), and submitting it as
your own work.
‫استخدام عمل شخص أخر مع تغيير بعض‬
‫الكلمات و المحافظة على نفس الترتيب‬
‫للجملة و نفس المعني من غير ذكر المصدر‬
‫وانتساب العمل لك‬
Plagiarism is : taking text
from many other sources and
putting pieces together as
one document and
submitting it as your own
work, without noting the
source(s).
‫اخذ الجمل من مصادر عديده و‬
‫وضعها في ملف واحد و تسليمها من‬
‫غير ذكر المصدر‬
Plagiarism is : downloading
information, pictures or
charts from the Internet and
inserting that material into
your own document and
submitting it as your own
work without noting the
source(s).
‫تحميل الملفات من االنترنت مثل الصور و الجدول‬
‫و الرسم البياني و استخدامها في ملفك الخاص و‬
.‫تسليمها عمل خاص بك دوم ذكر المصدر‬
Would you steal a car?
Would you steal a laptop?
Would you steal a mobile
phone?
Of course not.
But if you copy from a book or
the Internet without crediting
the source, you are stealing
the words of a writer.
HCT considers
plagiarism the same as
other forms of cheating.
Students can be forced
to leave the college if
they plagiarize.
Students will not be allowed
to go to other colleges in the
UAE if they have left a college
because of plagiarism.
Again, plagiarism,
or stealing the
words of others,
is a serious issue
for HCT students.
How can you avoid plagiarism?
Fortunately, it is simple.
The best way to avoid
plagiarism is to
paraphrase what you
read. This means that
you write the ideas in
your own words. You
can make the original
shorter and simpler.
Your English teachers can
explain how to paraphrase.
Ask your teacher to show
you or give you PlugIn 37
USING THE ONLINE
THESAURUS AND
DICTIONARY IN WORD.
This will help you learn how to
paraphrase.
If you need
to use the exact
words in a text,
you must put
“quotation marks”
around these
words.
You must also indicate the
source of the words (original
of paraphrase). This is called
a REFERENCE or a CITATION.
Ask your teacher to
show you or give the
PlugIn lessons about
writing
IN-TEXT REFERENCES
OR CITATIONS.
And, PlugIn lessons about
writing a REFERENCE LIST or
BIBLIOGRAPHY.
I hope this helps
you understand
about academic
honesty.
Remember plagiarism (copying
from a print or online resource) is
the same as cheating. Learn how to
paraphrase and write references of
the sources of your information.
