9) While submitting the Coursework online on MyUniHub, the students are required to use Turnitin that measures in %, the similarity of the work with other work. There is no minimum or maximum % of plagiarism acceptable. There is no rule as to what % of plagiarism is allowed. The only way is not to undertake plagiarism. The following are 2 extreme examples:
a. Example-1: a student has copied 20% of the content from 1 journal article. This will be certainly unacceptable and will lead to failure in the coursework.
b. Example-2: a student has taken 1% each from 20 different sources and hence the Turnitin total is showing 20%. This may be acceptable provided other contents are relevant to the coursework and these 20 sources are properly cited in the main body text and also in the References at the end of the coursework.

14) Ensure that proper accurate references are cited as per the guidelines given in ai??i??References and Citation Styleai??i?? section of this handout.
