  1. All project work is expected to be the original work of individuals/teams submitting it. In particular, please avoid committing either plagiarism or collusion

i. Plagiarism: plagiarism is the offence of attributing someone else’s work to your own name. If you feel it would be helpful to use another author’s own words to illustrate a point that supports your findings, please use quotation marks and clear reference to the author
