The Department of Foreign Languages, Translation and Interpreting (DFLTI) promotes academic ethics and is opposed to any form of plagiarism.
Code of Ethics of Ionian University
The Ionian University Ethics Committee (IU) has drawn up the Code of Ethics and Good Practice.
Its provisions stipulate, for example:
- The Ethics Committee duties
- Basic principles of ethics, such as academic freedom, excellence and non-discrimination
- The academic staff and the students’ rights and obligations
- Proper management of facilities and resources
- Processes on the prevention of plagiarism and the penalties of plagiarizing.
Full details can be found in the IU’s Code of Ethics and Good Practices.
DFLTI, and the academic community at large, is opposed to plagiarism. Plagiarism is defined as the use of ideas, passages or particular phrases of a third person, without any mention of the source.
DFLTI has adopted strict measures against plagiarism – whether those were found in semester assignments and/or undergraduate and/or postgraduate dissertations.
TurnItin plagiarism control software
DFLTI has integrated TurnItin plagiarism software in all courses. Upon submission of any final semester assignment in the Ionio Open eClass e-learning platform the submitted content undergoes evaluation from TurnItin by checking the text similarity to other submitted works. If plagiarism is detected, then the submitted content is automatically graded with a zero score.
IU Library’s website contains the full listing of Frequently Asked Questions on plagiarism.
Undergraduate and Postgraduate Dissertation Regulation
Upon the declaration of a dissertation topic, the student receives documentation regarding plagiarism. The Dissertation Regulation section contains all relevant information. The student has to include a declaration of original work when turning in their dissertation. All students must comply with these rules and regulations.
