Failure to Cite

Definition overview

1 Definition

Failure to cite is when students inadvertently fail to indicate, through referencing in their submitted Assessment work, that another person's thoughts, writing, ideas or work are not their own. While it is recognised that scholarly work often involves reference to the ideas, data and conclusions of other scholars, intellectual honesty requires that such references be explicitly and clearly noted.
