The University of Cape Coast has introduced an anti-plagiarism policy for graduate students of the university.
The policy is to protect the sanctity and originality of researches conducted by the university and also to deepen knowledge.
The university’s quest to become the stronghold in the area of graduate education in Ghana caused the school of graduate studies to commission a committee to draft the policy.
At the graduation ceremony organized by the university, Vice Chancellor of the University of Cape Coast, Prof. Joseph Ghartey-Ampiah, announced to the congregation that the policy has been accepted and approved by the academic board of the university for implementation in the 2019/2020 academic year.
“I am happy to inform you that the policy has been accepted and approved by the academic board of the university for implementation in the 2019/2020 academic year,” he announced.
Prof. Ghartey-Ampiah stated that the university had also purchased the ‘turn it in’ software (a software for checking plagiarism) to help reduce the level of plagiarism and increase the potency and originality of research output.
“Currently, staff and postgraduate students are being trained in the use of the software,” he averred.
