  16. 16. Ethical Information Use
  17. 17. Ethical Information Use <ul><li>Plagiarism and Academic Integrity </li></ul><ul><li>Defining plagiarism. Quite simply, “plagiarism is failing to acknowledge the words, [materials] or ideas of another. . . [it can be] deliberate or accidental” (Tensen, 2004, Research Strategies for a Digital Age , p. 97). </li></ul><ul><li>Credit your sources. Plagiarism is a very serious academic offense. Whenever you use someone else's ideas or work in text, images, audio, or any other format, you must CREDIT YOUR SOURCES! </li></ul><ul><li>Do not copy sentence by sentence. If you copy information sentence by sentence from a source, altering or omitting some of the words, you can be plagiarizing. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>University of Oklahoma College of Arts and Sciences.

  20. 20. How to Cite <ul><li>Direct quote </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Theobald (1997) says “A community is a place where people who may not like one another nevertheless work together to advance the welfare of that which they hold in common” (p. 121). </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Technology has allowed people living in rural areas new economic opportunities, but this “freedom has come with a high price tag---the relationships that held communities together have become fragile and transitory” (Bridger, 2002, p. 11). </li></ul></ul>
  21. 21. How to Cite <ul><li>Ideas </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Among the 250 poorest communities in the U.S., 244 of them are rural (Malhoit, 2005). </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Gylfason and Zoega’s (2003) study of economic growth and education around the world shows that education is closely related to national income and income equity in 87 countries. </li></ul></ul>
