作弊和剽竊

聲明:
網路常有專門販賣以各式主題所寫的各種品質的大學程度學術報告,我非但對這些網頁相當熟悉,還有對提供大學教授偵測的管道也很熟悉。如有購買並且繳交這類報告,即被視為「作弊」。另外,引用他人的著作或是線上網頁的文句卻沒有註釋,則是「剽竊」。我會嚴格執行麻省理工學院的學術誠實政策。相關麻省理工學院的定義與政策可上以下網站。

Cheating and Plagiarism

Statement on Cheating and Plagiarism: The web now hosts many sites which offer college-level papers of varying quality on a variety of topics. I am well acquainted with these sites, and with others that offer detection services to professors. Buying a paper and submitting it as your own work is cheating. Copying sections from someone else's print or online work into your own without an acknowledgement is plagiarism. MIT has strict policies against both activities that I will fully enforce.
