2000 Declaration regarding plagiarism and confidentiality
Radio 2000 and the SABC emphasize integrity and ethical behaviour with regard to the preparation of all original design work submitted for evaluation.
Students who are guilty of plagiarism will be removed from the competition.
Plagiarism is considered a serious violation of the SABC’s competition regulations.
Radio 2000 personnel provide information regarding reference techniques, as well as ways to avoid plagiarism. Ultimately, it is your responsibility to comply with ethical and research behavior.
You are guilty of plagiarism when you extract information from a book, article, web page or any other information source without acknowledging the source and pretend that it is your own work. This does not only apply to cases where you quote verbatim, but also when you present someone else’s work in a somewhat amended (paraphrased) format, or when you use someone else’s arguments or ideas without the necessary acknowledgement. You are also guilty of plagiarism if you copy and paste information directly from an electronic source (e.g. website, e-mail message, electronic journal article, or CD ROM), without paraphrasing it or placing it in quotation marks, even if you acknowledge the source. You are not allowed to submit another student’s previous work as your own. You are furthermore not allowed to let anyone copy or use your work with the intention of presenting it as his/her own.
The following declaration must accompany all written work/ design work that is submitted for evaluation to SABC and Radio 2000. No work will be accepted unless the declaration has been completed and is included in the particular assignment.
I (full names and surname):
Declare the following:
I understand what plagiarism entails and I am aware of the SABC and Radio 2000 policy in this regard.
I declare that this submission is my own, original work. Where someone else’s work was used (whether from a printed source, the Internet or any other source) due acknowledgement was given and reference was made according to departmental or faculty requirements.
I did not copy and paste any information directly from an electronic source (e.g. a web page, electronic journal article or CD-ROM) into this design.
I did not make use of another student’s previous work and submitted it as my own.
I did not allow and will not allow anyone to copy my work with the intention of presenting it as his / her own work.
I state that any company information contained herein that is not already in the public domain has been obtained with the permission of the company, and that the company has given permission for the disclosure of all this information
