    Plagiarism
  • 10. Types of plagiarism
    • Plagiarism takes many forms including :
    • intentional
    • unintentional
    • and may involve:
    • collusion – getting help from others (family, friends, colleagues, etc)
    • non reference of quotes – not accrediting the source of the quote used
    • poor use of paraphrasing – not using quotes effectively
    • using unacknowledged sources– cutting and pasting content without attribute
    • submitting essay bank materials – purchasing pre-written essays
    • time saving tactics – re-using an old essay, only changing a few words
    • To find out more, take a look at the following DVD available in the Library:
    • Avoiding plagiarism [DVD] total running time approx 23 mins.
    • includes section Quoting, paraphrasing and summarizing (6 mins.)
  • 11. Doing the right thing
    • There are several ways to avoid plagiarising the work of others.
    • Quote
    • useful to highlight main points, support arguments made in your work
    • place exact quote word for word in quotation marks and list source eg.
    • “ plagiarism is a notion specific to a particular culture and epoch” (Ashworth, Freewood and Macdonald, 2003)
    • But - don’t use too many quotes in one piece of work
    • Paraphrase
    • read quote and rephrase into your own words to give an overview
    • it is not enough to just change one word in the quote
    • Remember to attribute the broad ideas to the original author.
    • Summarize
    • Instead of using multi quotes, take the main background ideas from each and present an overview of them all.
