Here's Stanford's code:
"Plagiarism and the Honor
"Plagiarism is the act of presenting the words
or ideas of someone else as your own without
proper acknowledgment of the source. The term
source includes not only books, periodicals and
websites, but also lecture notes, drawings, films
and other formats of information, such as computer
programs, music and graphics. If you do not credit
the author, you are committing theft.
"Be aware that plagiarism includes much more
than just copying someone's work. Though it may
be unintentional, quoting, paraphrasing or adapting
material, and presenting someone else's idea,
opinion, or theory as your own, are all examples
"Remember that ethical scholarship demands that
you acknowledge the original author.
"At Stanford, all students are subject to the Honor Code regarding academic conduct. Adopted in 1921, the
Honor Code shifts the responsibility to the students
for not giving nor receiving unpermitted
aid in any work that will be used
by instructors as a basis for grading. Violation
of the Honor Code results in serious penalties,
so familiarize yourself with it.
"Interpretations of the Stanford Honor Code underscores the
intent of the
Dual Submission Policy which
prohibits submitting the same or substantially
similar work in more than one class without the
approval of the instructor."
