Researchers have been urged to steer clear of plagiarism.
A Resource Person from the South Pacific, Prof. Satish Chandra counselled participants at the EU-ACP Workshop organised for Early Career Scientists and Researchers, held recently in the University.
According to him, plagiarism is the act of copying someone’s work and using it unedited, stressing that such act must be avoided by all.
He frowned at those who are fond of engaging in plagiarism through practice of cutting and pasting, noting that other people’s work should be used with acknowledgement.
Prof. Chandra who lectured extensively on writing of research proposals and Curriculum Vitae (CVs), emphasized that participants should always ensure that their proposals and CVs are clear, brief and realistic.
