The Naval War College Organization and Regulations Manual, Instruction 5400.1N, describes the College’s academic honor code. The Naval War College enforces a strict academic code requiring students to credit properly the source of materials directly cited in any written work submitted in fulfillment of diploma or degree requirements. Simply put: plagiarism is prohibited. The code prohibits cheating and the misrepresentation of a paper as a student’s new thought.
Plagiarism is the act of taking ideas, writings, or the like from another and passing them as one’s own. Plagiarism includes the following:
Students are expected to give full credit in their written submissions when borrowing another’s words and ideas. This code does not prohibit borrowing of words or ideas, with proper attribution, when preparing a paper or essay. A substantially borrowed but attributed paper may, however, lack the originality expected of graduate level work. Submission of such a paper may merit a low or failing grade.
Materials submitted for grading must be in conformance with the Naval War College Academic Honor Code.
