Note on plagiarism:

When writing your work, you will understandably use documents (i.e. books and articles, etc.) by other authors. It is important, however, to make it clear what is your own text and what has been borrowed from others, i.e. you should always duly reference the source you have used in the form of a bibliographic citation. The obligation to uphold the ethics of citations is set out in the Copyright Act No. 121/2000. Failure to cite sources used is considered plagiarism.

Plagiarism is thus considered to be:

appropriating someone else’s manuscript and its publication under one’s own name appropriating the ideas or results of someone else’s work without specifying the real author appropriating part of a text or paragraphs without providing a bibliographic citation the appropriation of an original text and merely making stylistic adjustment.
