“Plagiarism is the practice of presenting the thoughts, writings or other output of another or others as original, without acknowledgement of their source(s). All material used to support a piece of work, whether a printed publication or from electronic media, should be appropriately identified and referenced and should not normally be copied directly unless as an acknowledged quote. Text translated into the words of the individual student should in all cases acknowledge the source.”
Before submitting assignments, you should check through it to ensure that:
- all material identified as originally from a previously published source has been properly attributed by the inclusion of an appropriate citation in the text;
- direct quotations are marked as such (using “quotation marks” at the beginning and end of the selected text), and
- full details of the reference citations have been included in the Reference List (in RGU Harvard format).
Students are encouraged to review their work using the Turnitin Plagiarism Detection Service via CampusMoodle before final submission.

If the word count of an assessment is considered critical, then this will be reflected in the assessment criteria for that assessment.
Generally, the title page, executive summary (or abstract), contents page, lists of tables and figures, glossary (if required), reference list, and any appendices are not part of the word count.
Everything in the main body of text, including headings, sub-headings, citations and direct quotes, is included in the word count.
Anything you consider essential for your marker to read should be in the main body of text. Anything that is supplementary or supporting material should be in the appendices. Regarding tables in the main body of text:
- A table containing mainly numeric content would not be considered part of the word count.
- A table containing mainly text content would be considered part of the word count.
