  9. 9. Research Ethics • In other words, to plagiarize is 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 1. How not to plagiarize your report -- Shannon Hosier Mersand 9
  10. 10. Research Ethics 2 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
  11. 11. Research Ethics 3 So what is common knowledgeThings that are found in a number of places, and are likely to be known by a large number of people.Examples: – 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
  12. 12. Research Ethics What does paraphrase mean? Main Entry: para·phrase 1 : a restatement of a text, passage, or work giving the meaning in another form From Merriam-Webster’s Online Dictionary 12
  13. 13. Research Ethics What does it mean to put something in my own words? 4When 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
  14. 14. Research Ethics What is a quote? • Main Entry: quote 1 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 14
  15. 15. 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… 15
