      Plagiarism
      • In short, to plagiarize is to give the impression that you wrote or thought something that you in fact borrowed from someone else.
      • To do so is a violation of professional ethics.

      Documentation
      Scholarly authors acknowledge their debts to predecessors by giving credit to each source.
      You must specify what you borrowed (facts, opinions, quotations) and where you borrowed it from.
      Writing a paper in college is scholarly writing; you are a scholarly author.
    • Shippensburg University Library
      16
      Exceptions to Documentation
      Familiar proverbs: “You can’t judge a book by its cover.”
      Well-known quotations: “We shall overcome.”
      Common knowledge: “Shakespeare was born during the Elizabethan age.”

      Review
      Plagiarism is pretending something you wrote is your own idea.
      Honesty and ethics require that you give credit to another’s ideas.
      Documentation is giving credit to your sources of information or ideas.
      SU considers plagiarism to be Academic Dishonesty.

      Plagiarism is a form of academic dishonesty.
      Shippensburg University will not tolerate
      plagiarism, and the faculty will make all
      reasonable efforts to discourage it.
      Plagiarism is your unacknowledged use of
      another writer’s own words or specific facts or
      propositions or materials in your own writing.

      It’s not always plagiarism:

      students to fear plagiarizing when they are not
      really plagiarizing. These include:
      Improper format for documentation
      Use of supplemental individualized instruction
      on an assignment
      Use of a proofreader

      Meeting with the Professor
      You should be treated with respect.
      You should be given the rules.
