Cite right - concerning academic integrity

A self-study guide from the University Library

How is plagiarism detected?

A teacher who suspects cheating by plagiarising is obliged to report this to the University's Disciplinary Board.

In most cases teachers will recognise plagiarism when they see it. As a tool for detecting and counteracting plagiarism in works submitted for marking, teachers use a web-based system for text recognition called Urkund.

Urkund’s source material is comprehensive and consists of published as well as unpublished texts, especially students’ previous work assignments.
