    Research Ethics
    Plagiarism - “...the wrongful appropriation or purloining, and publication as one’s own, the ideas or the expression of the ideas (literary, artistic, musical, mechanical, etc.) of an other.” – see Heterick Help Page, Also Student Code of Conduct
    Copyright - intended to promote the arts and the sciences. 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.

    Research Ethics
    In other words, to plagiarize is to to copy someone else’s work without giving him/her credit.
    Plagiarism is not always intentional. You can do it by accident, but it is still against the law. If you ever have a question about whether something is plagiarized, please ask!
    1. How not to plagiarize your report -- Shannon Hosier Mersand
  • 9
    Research Ethics
    How may I avoid plagiarizing?
    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
  • 10
    Research Ethics
    So what is common knowledge
    Things that are found in a number of places, and are likely to be known by a large number of people.
    The sky is blue
    Grass is usually green
    George Washington was the 1st president of the United States
    3 How not to plagiarize your report -- Shannon Hosier Mersand
  • 11
    Research Ethics
    What does paraphrase mean?
    Main Entry: 1para·phrase1: a restatement of a text, passage, or work giving the meaning in another form
    From Merriam-Webster’s Online Dictionary http://www.m-w.com
  • 12
    Research Ethics
    What does it mean to put something in my own words?
    When you paraphrase something, it is different than putting it in your own words. When you put something in your own words, you are making a statement about the information you have found, rather than just restating the information. Usually there is an opinion of some sort in something “in your own words”
    4 How not to plagiarize your report -- Shannon Hosier Mersand
  • 13
    Research Ethics
    What is a quote?
    Main Entry: 1quote1 a: to speak or write (a passage) from another usually with credit acknowledgment b: to repeat a passage from, especially in substantiation or illustration
    From Merriam-Webster’s Online Dictionary http://www.m-w.com
  • 14
    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 Turabian'sA 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…

    Research Ethics
    When should I cite my sources?
    Whenever you use information that is not common knowledge
    Whenever you use information that you did not know before doing the research
    Whenever you quote another person’s ideas or word, whether they are written or spoken
    Whenever you paraphrase another person’s written or spoken words or ideas
