Warning on illegal downloading and plagiarism
Dean of Graduate School of Public Policy
– Illegal Downloads
It has been pointed out by outside monitoring institutions that students at GraSPP have violated copyright by downloading proprietary information from the internet. Not all videos available on the internet are legal copies. Without intention, you may be downloading a copyrighted file. Please use extreme caution and do not take any risks. Moreover, some file exchange software may download/upload files automatically, without your explicit intention. Please do not use such file exchange software.
Plagiarism often occurs at the time of writing reports, research papers and Kenkyu ronbun. When you reference or quote existing work, you need to attribute credits appropriately, and quotes have to be explicitly marked according to the academic standard. We had cases of plagiarism in other graduate schools. “Plagiarism” is a serious offense and it may result in not only failing the course, but also expulsion from GraSPP or, even after graduation, rescinding your diploma.
