It does this by providing authors of original literary, dramatic, musical, artistic, and certain other intellectual works the ability to control how their work is used by others. 6
  7. 7. Research Ethics In other words, to plagiarize is to to copy someone else’s work without 1 giving him/her credit. Plagiarism is not always intentional. You can do it by accident, but it is still against the law. If 1 you ever have a question about whether something is plagiarized, please ask! 1.

Research Ethics How may I avoid plagiarizing? 2 Identify any information that would not be considered common knowledge Unless in direct quotes, make sure you paraphrase what the original author said Use a quote if you can’t think of a way to paraphrase the information always, Always, ALWAYS cite the source of any information in your paper which is not considered common knowledge. If you are unsure if something is common knowledge, cite it! 2 How not to plagiarize your report -- Shannon Hosier Mersand 8
  9. 9. Research Ethics What is a citation? A citation is how you indicate where your information came from. There are four citation styles that are in frequent use at the college level. They are: • MLA (Modern Language Association) • APA (American Psychological Association) • CMS (Chicago Manual of Style) • Turabian (Kate Turabians A Manual for Writers of Term Papers, Theses, and Dissertations, 6th ed., 1996 ) Each style has a way to do in-text citations, a way to do a bibliography, and a way to do footnotes and endnotes. Always confirm with each instructor the style required. You need to learn how to do citations, etc., but there is a citation software management tool available to all ONU students, faculty and staff… 9
