This course recognizes and adheres to the principles of the Elon
Academic Honor Code. Students are expected to be familiar with
the code and follow it consistently, regardless of whether the
professor is present to enforce it. Questions about possible
violations should be directed to the instructor. Suspected
violations will be reported to the Assistant Vice President of
Academic Affairs. (Fair: GST 346, Spring 2002)
It is expected that students graduating with a degree in political
science will maintain high standards of professional ethics.
The Elon University Honor Code will be strictly enforced in this
class. Guidelines regarding plagiarism, citations and
independent research will be strictly enforced. All violations
will be sent to the honor council for review. Any questions
about proper citation, paraphrasing, or guidelines for research
should be discussed with the course professor. Ignorance about
the guidelines for research and writing will not be considered
adequate excuse for honor code violations. You are expected to
read the honor code. See:
(Spray: POL 461,
I adhere to the academic honor code policy set forth in your student
handbook, and I encourage you to review its contents. Any
suspected violation of the honor code will be reported to the Office
of the Provost and vice President for Academic Affairs. The
lines between verbatim plagiarism, unacceptably extensive
paraphrasing, and acceptable summarizing are not always clear to
students. But I am holding you accountable to make those
distinctions correctly, and claims of ignorance will not be accepted
as an excuse. THEREFORE, if you have ANY doubts at any time
about what is and is not acceptable, PLEASE consult with me before
turning in a paper. This is a serious concern for if you are
adjudicated as having violated the honor code, you will receive an
"F" in the course.
(Pickens: PSY 461, Spring 2002)
