In seminar papers, students should examine a clearly defined question, which emerges from the topic of the seminar, within a specified timeframe using the recognized methods of computational linguistics and present their results in the correct form and to a reasonable extent. Further information will be provided in the seminars itself.
The easy availability of texts in digital form (especially on the Internet) has given the general public, and thus also students, the impression that everything that has been published so far is somehow in the "public domain" and therefore can be freely inserted in own works. This impression is wrong. Especially in assessed work, such as seminar papers, programming projects, term papers, licentiate and master's theses, adopted formulations, ideas and other intellectual achievements, and wherever these services were published must be meticulously documented - everything else is Plagiarism. The university has significantly tightened sanctions against students who plagiarise because of the proliferation of plagiarism.
