  • Traditional system of scholarly communication….Standing on the shoulders of giants….Intellectual property
  • What is a peer-reviewed journal article, what does it look like? Show Print journal Show article in print journal (Identity Theft) Show same article found in database (Business Source Complete)
  • Provides support for your own argument, shows people you are not inferring causation from correlation Gives credit to people for their work Gives readers a path to other resources related to your topic, or provides a path other readers can use to trace back to your resources (your instructor may want to check your resources) (or, as a reader, if you find a great article that is perfect for your topic, you can go back and look through the citations or references from that article to find other articles and sources that may be directly related to your topic as well)
  • Plagiarism is very bad, it is not only using other people’s work and passing it off as your own, but it is also poor scholarly practice. Whether intentional or unintentional, you can still be penalized.
  • So what is it?The scientific and professional organization that represents psychology in the United States, they also publish the APA manual which includes information on proper research and scholarly practice. Includes formatting information, research ethics, and of course, citation instructions and information.
  • So, these are going to be your building blocks or your checklist when building citations.These apply to all citations you do.Use the manual and your handout as support
  • We have our editors, book title, publisher, place of publication, and a date. The date is questionable, you could argue for putting n.d. for no date, as no copyright date is shown, but if you notice the call number, a date is included, so you could argue 2005 is the most current date.
  • So thinking about our building blocks, we have our chapter authors, chapter title, if we go pack to the previous slide…

  • Why do we cite?• If you don’t acknowledge other people’s work, words or ideas you commit plagiarism “Penalties for plagiarism serve both to educate students about standards of scholarship and to deter deception and poor scholarly practices. Penalties will reflect the seriousness of the offence; including whether the offence was intentional or unintentional and whether it was a first or a repeat offence” (Okanagan College, 2010, Penalties section, para. 1 ).Okanagan College Academic Offenses regulations and policies
