Academic Integrity & Avoiding Plagiarism

Where can I get help?


If you have questions about academic integrity or plagiarism, there are places to get help!  

Talk to your professors.
They are in the very best position to explain to you their research and writing expectations. Bring your work with you and write down a few of your questions so you will be prepared. Don't wait until the last minute.

Learning Strategist Services
Whether it is managing time, getting organized or preparing in advance to do well on an exam, students may contact the learning strategist to explore specific strategies and skills they may need to meet their academic goals.

The Writing Centre.
They are located on the same floor as the Library, and offer several services for MSVU students free of charge, such as individual appointments with staff who can help with any writing concerns at any stage of the process. They also hold workshops throughout the academic year.

The Library
The Library has many resources to help you with your research and writing. Librarians are not able to provide editing services, but they can help you interpret the writing and citation guides.
