Anti-Plagiarism Guide

Tags: English


About this guide

Academic honesty means, among other things, not cheating by having notes in your pocket on the exam, plagiarising someone else's text or creating a text using an AI tool and stating yourself as the author. But sometimes the border between what is cheating and plagiarism and what is not is hard to identify. The Interactive Anti-Plagiarism Guide tells you how to avoid plagiarism and covers the following issues:

  • What is plagiarism and how do I avoid it?
  • How is plagiarism discovered and what happens if I plagiarise?
  • Academic codes of conduct.  

In every module of the guide, we present:

  • an introduction to the topic
  • films and other sources of information

Academic norms and culture may differ between countries. This guide will provide you with insight into the norms and values of higher education in Sweden.
