Plagiarism management

Plagiarism management


To ensure compliance with the principles established in the Code of Good Practice for Managing Plagiarism of Ph.D. Theses of the Doctoral School, all theses must be subjected to a plagiarism management procedure prior to the authorization of the defense.

Once the Academic Committee of your Ph.D. program determines that your research period is done and your thesis is ready for deposit, a pdf file* of the thesis will be submitted to the Doctoral School.

Both the Doctoral School and the Library Teaching Support Service are in charge of the plagiarism management procedure, the results of which are to be sent back to the Academic Committee of the program. The Committee will subsequently issue a recommendation report that has to be validated by the Dean of Doctoral School.

The results of this study will be at the disposal of the members of the thesis committee, should they be requested.

Please note:

Only the thesis file that has successfully passed the plagiarism management procedure will be considered final and suitable for the defense process (deposit, submission to Thesis Committee and publication in institutional archive).

Theses submitted for deposit with no prior plagiarism management procedure may have to be subjected to the deposit process from the start in the event of an unfavorable result of this study.
