All exam submissions are checked using the University of Vienna's plagiarism software (Turnitin). Answers copy-pasted from the lecture slides or the Internet, copying of texts without the corresponding bibliography or copying from other participants of the same exam will be detected and will be reported.

The independence of the submitted work might be checked in the form of an interview up to four weeks following the examination. Students are required to attend these appointments upon request.
