Food system in the 21st century

takes academic integrity very seriously. Writing and submitting assignments must be done independently – you must submit an original paper that you yourself wrote, with appropriate references. Academic citing is not mandatory and no points will be deducted due to the lack of it, however, every idea presented in an answer that is not the student’s own original thought requires a reference. It might seem like using the ideas of others is a problem. However, this is not the case. Scholarship is a conversation; that is, you are expected to read, analyze, process and respond to the ideas of others when writing your papers, in a way that makes the final essay your own. The key to doing this without plagiarizing is to cite your sources.
