Interesting statistics:

Hereby it is expressly pointed out that when writing term papers, bachelor theses, master theses and diploma theses, it is absolutely necessary to take care to include information from the sources in the examination papers, should contents be taken from ready-made papers. If contents are identified without indication of the source, these are considered plagiarisms.

We make it clear that detected plagiarism will be strictly punished by the examination board. In particularly severe cases, the examination board will assess the entire subject for which the paper was submitted as definitively failed.

For seminar, term paper, term paper, bachelor and master theses you will find format recommendations in the Digicampus, on the website of the University Library, or on the pages of the Chairs of the University of Augsburg. The guidelines described there represent a proposal for the formal and content-related design of academic papers.
