Actions for the prevention of plagiarism

Document to download:



Preparing students for having good writing practices is a responsibility the UNIL takes very seriously. As a Doctoral School, we believe that scientific integrity & the prevention of plagiarism should be at the heart of the PhD training. 


We therefore encourage all the PhD students: 

  • To discuss about the good writing practices with the thesis director, 
  • To use the tools available at UNIL to ensure that all the written productions are free of any form of plagiarism.

Checks of theses manuscripts

Since 2020, the Doctoral school is carrying out occasional checks of theses manuscripts (when submitted for the private defense) & possibly all kind of written documents. Analyses are performed randomly or at the request of a member of the thesis committee or a teacher (Directive de la Direction 3.15. Traitement des cas de plagiat dans le cadre de l’enseignement, article 1).
