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. 6
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. How not to plagiarize your report -- Shannon Hosier Mersand 7
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
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
