  • Oasis album (2000)Cedalion Standing on the Shoulders of OrionIn Greek mythology, Cedalion or Kedalion (Classical Greek Κηδαλίων) was a servant of Hephaestus in Lemnos. According to one tradition, he was Hephaestus's tutor, with whom Hera fostered her son on Naxos to teach him smithcraft.[1] Kerenyi compares him to the Cabeiri, to Chiron, and to Prometheus.[2]The more common story of Cedalion tells of his part in the healing of Orion, who came to Lemnos after he was blinded by Oenopion.

  • Das experiment (2001 German thriller) and The experiment (2010) Stanford Prison experiment Philip ZimbardoFabrication is making up results and recording or reporting them. This is sometimes referred to as "drylabbing".[10] A more minor form of fabrication is where references are included to give arguments the appearance of widespread acceptance, but are actually fake, and/or do not support the argument.[11]Falsification is manipulating research materials, equipment, or processes or changing or omitting data or results such that the research is not accurately represented in the research record.Plagiarism is the appropriation of another person's ideas, processes, results, or words without giving appropriate credit.Self-plagiarism – or multiple publication of the same content with different titles and/or in different journals is sometimes also considered misconduct The violation of ethical standards such as the standard that a human subject of the experiment must give informed consent to the experimentGhostwriting  the phenomenon where someone other than the named author(s) makes a major contribution

There are three basic forms of plagiarism: 1 Quoting (Quoting someone else word for word but not crediting them as the source.) 2 Paraphrasing (if you do not quote the person verbatim but instead just change a few words and do not give credit, you have committed plagiarism. ) 3 stealing ideas (Using the ideas of another without acknowledging their source) Source:
    44. 44. Letterdieverij From:
    45. 45. A Forensic Science student uses in his thesis a section in which he changes all sentences a little, without sources. Is this allowed? A student uses in his essay a paragraph from Google which says just what he was trying to say. He provides no references and submits it as his own work. Is this allowed? A student tries to include as many scholarly books and journals as he can find. He puts them in quotation marks but forgot where they came from. He decides not to include a reference list. Allowed? A PhD student copies from a conference poster a method to calculate the statistics of his experiments. In his thesis he describes the method completely in his own words without acknowledging the source, because the method has not been published yet. Allowed? Is it allowed to republish the work of Jan Slauerhoff without permission? (Slauerhoff is a Dutch poet and novelist and lived from 1898 - 1936)
    46. 46. Forensic Science, Information Literacy 46 A student uses a picture from a site of a large crime laboratory for here report on fingerprinting, with acknowledgment of sources, but without permission. Is this allowed? A student uses for his third year bachelor thesis 5 lines of text from a book, literally, with acknowledgment of sources and without permission. Is this allowed? A group of students works on a very difficult programming assignment. They agree on an algorithm to accomplish the programming task, and each submits this algorithm as his/her own work. Is this allowed? A first-year student finds essay-writing difficult and has developed a style in which she quotes from a text (using proper referencing) and then rewrites the quotation in her own words in the next paragraph as a kind of summary. Is this allowed? A student turns in an old report from a friend (with his permission) under her own name, without mentioning the source. Is this allowed?
