The Chinese University of Hong Kong places very high importance on honesty in academic work submitted by students, and adopts a policy of zero tolerance on cheating and plagiarism. Any related offence will lead to disciplinary action including termination of studies at the University.

Proper use of source material: In academic writing, source material, including online resources, such as websites, electronic journals or articles in an online newspaper, must be properly acknowledged. Mild cases of failure to acknowledge would be regarded as poor academic writing. Serious cases of failure to acknowledge, especially where there appears to be the intention to mislead the reader about the originality, would constitute plagiarism.

With effect from September 2008, all student assignments should be submitted via VeriGuide (維誠) - the Chinese University Plagiarism Detection Engine. This plagiarism detection system is being used at the University and other institutions for promoting and upholding academic honesty and integrity. After students' submission of assignments via VeriGuide, the VeriGuide engine will automatically inform the teacher concerned regarding all similarity levels of students' assignments. The teacher has the responsibility to report the case to the University if there is a suspected plagiarism case. This is the regulation of the university governing all teachers and academic units including our EMBA program.

Participants are strongly advised to study the rules and regulations posted in the following website: http://www.cuhk.edu.hk/policy/academichonesty/
