  3. 3. THE LIBRARIAN'S ROLE IN COMBATING PLAGIARISM Vyva Victoria M. Aguirre, LL.M., M.L.S. Paper presented in a Lecture Forum on “The Role of Information Professionals and Librarians in Combating Plagiarism and Other Forms of Intellectual Dishonesty”, sponsored by the Philippine Association of Academic and Research Librarians, held at the Manila International Book Fair, September 12, 2008, SMX Meeting Rooms, SM Mall of Asia, Macapagal Avenue, Pasay City Let us start this sharing with a story: Mario and Cesar were both graduate students WHAT IS PLAGIARISM? Plagiarism is defined by of Communication in a prestigious university. Webster's (1998) as the taking and using “of ideas, They were both enrolled in the creative writing passages, etc. from another's work, representing them class. But while Mario was already a well- as one's own”. On the other hand, a more accurate known script writer-director for telenovelas, definition would be “the uncredited use (intentional or Cesar was not even starting a career yet. One unintentional) of somebody else's words or ideas” day after class, Cesar, Mario and classmates (OWL at Purdue, 2008). Carrie Russell defines it as Tony, Fred and Nandy decided to unwind in a “the act of claiming authorship for another's words or beer house. During this relaxed moment, ideas”. Note that uncredited use of “ideas”, and not Cesar told the group that he is thinking of merely expressions thereof, is also plagiarism. Note writing a script. The idea for the script is all in further that plagiarism does not distinguish between his head. He recounted the story to his friends intentional and unintentional uncredited use. And do to get their reactions. It was a love story you know that the verb “to plagiarize” comes from a between a man and a woman who vowed to Latin word that means “to kidnap”? love each other not until death but even (wadsworth.com/english_d/special_features/plagiarism) beyond death. He unfolded his plot and the story ended with the woman dying and coming No law directly makes plagiarism a crime. Instead, it is back to haunt her lover so that he will never usually incorporated in rules of discipline of schools forget his promise to her. Everyone praised and academic institutions. Plagiarism is also closely the story and urged Cesar to go ahead and associated with copyright violation because attributing write the script and submit it to a TV director to oneself work done by another violates that other for possible airing. Two weeks after, Cesar put person's exclusive rights granted by copyright laws. It on his TV set to watch Mario's telenovela. To also violates that person's moral rights under section his surprise, he realized he was watching a 193.1 of the Intellectual Property Code. Carrie Russell play based on the story that he recounted to (2004, p.131) enumerates the following distinctions his friends, among them, Mario. His name was between plagiarism and copyright violation: not even mentioned in the credits. Instead, Mario was cited as script-writer and director. 1. Using even a small amount of a work He felt betrayed. His friends Tony, Fred and written by someone else without Nandy urged him to complain. Can Cesar attribution is plagiarism, but to be guilty complain? What would be the basis of his of copyright infringement, the amount complaint? What is Mario guilty of, if he is copied must be in some sense guilty of anything? Remember, Cesar had not substantial written down a single sentence of the script that he had recounted to Mario and the others. 2. One can plagiarize any work that has ever been written, no matter how old My paper will concentrate on plagiarism. However, I and no matter who the author, but will later entertain questions about the other forms of copying even an entire book that is in intellectual dishonesty, especially copyright violation. the public domain... is not a violation of Actually, copyright violation is not, properly speaking, copyright. intellectual dishonesty although it is indeed a form of dishonesty. While it is theft of another person's 3. It is possible to plagiarize ideas, even intellectual property copyright violation does not facts (if they are presented in the same attribute to oneself another person's work or ideas, order and context as another work) but unless the violation is also plagiarism. copyright law does not protect facts or ideas, only the way in which they are expressed within a particular work.

  4. 4. Essentially, plagiarism is attributing to oneself another is intellectual dishonesty that is treated as a grave person's ideas and writings while copyright violation is misconduct. unauthorized use of a copyright owner's work, even if the work is attributed to its author (that is, even if the However, it is often difficult to determine whether the author has been cited and identified in the copy). In the uncredited use was intentional or not. To repeat, some story of Mario and Cesar, Mario did not infringe examples of obvious intentional violations are copying Cesar's copyright since Cesar had not put his ideas an entire paper either from the web or from another down in writing. However, he stole Cesar's idea of a person, hiring someone to write a paper for you, and story and theft of ideas is plagiarism. According to substantial copying of texts verbatim, without placing Dames (2007), while there is no law that punishes quotation marks (or some other recommended format plagiarism, “plagiarism allegations can be much more to show that it is a quotation) or without including the damaging to a person's professional reputation than proper citation (note the “or”) (OWL at Purdue, 2008). allegations of copyright infringement”. If you are a In the latter case, however, when it is an member of an academic community or a renowned undergraduate student who does this, and especially professional, it is highly embarrassing to even be when there is a citation but without the quotation suspected of plagiarism. marks, one can give the benefit of the doubt that the plagiarism had been unintentional (unless the copying My experience with students (e.g., thesis writers) has had been so extensive as to amount to pages and been that many of them do not know what plagiarism pages of copied texts, in which case, the student means. Plagiarism may be committed in the following deserves to get a failing mark). The academic ways: (1) submitting someone else's work as your institution or school, especially its teachers, can help own; (2) copying words or ideas from someone without minimize unintentional plagiarism by including formal giving credit; (3) failing to put quotation marks for instructions on plagiarism and proper citations (e.g., in phrases or sentences copied verbatim from another's composition classes). A clear and strong school policy work; (4) giving incorrect information about the source against all forms of intellectual dishonesty is also of a quotation [to mislead because it would be very helpful especially for curbing intentional plagiarism. difficult if not impossible to find the source]; (5) One such policy is reflected in a statement used by changing words but copying the sentence structure of Prof. Irwin Weiser of Purdue University in his a source without giving credit [e.g., breaking a long Introductory Composition courses, and I quote: sentence into two, or putting together two sentences, with the use of conjunctions—and, or, therefore, etc.]; When writers use material from other and (6) copying so many words or ideas from another sources, they must acknowledge this so that the work which you claim is yours is made up source... You are therefore cautioned (1) almost entirely with another persons words or ideas, against using, word for word, without whether you give credit or not acknowledgment, phrases, sentences, (plagiarism.org/learning_center). paragraphs, etc., from the printed or manuscript material of others; (2) against Many of us who work in academic environments are using with only slight changes the materials bothered by the many cases of plagiarism that we of another; and (3) against using the general encounter, not only by undergraduate students but plan, the main headings, or a rewritten form even by graduate researchers and faculty members. of someone else's material...

In necessary quotation marks or any other prescribed this class, anyone who plagiarizes fails the format for quotations. [Many student reports sound like course, and I will probably inform the Office this:]. Most academic institutions have rules penalizing of the Dean of Students of the reason for the plagiarism (e.g., suspension or expulsion for students, failing grade (OWL at Purdue, 2008). dismissal with forfeiture of benefits for staff and faculty members). In the University of the Philippines, there [I know of a professor in UP who actually includes a have been numerous cases of plagiarism and the warning in her test questions against cheating, with the penalties ranged from a grade of 5 (a failing mark), to corresponding penalty (a grade of 5). Perhaps we can suspension for a period of one year or more, to also do this for papers: we can make the students expulsion. Some faculty members have also been submit, with the term paper or thesis, a certification dismissed from the service for this offense. Plagiarism that nothing in his or her paper had been plagiarized]. July – September 2008 PAARL Newsletter 4
  5. 5. As earlier alluded to, there is a widespread opinion range of academic full text academic papers (Badke, that plagiarism has become more widespread with 2007). In addition, search through the databases of access to the Internet. Laura Smith quotes Tim aggregators like EBSCOhost and ProQuest can also Roberts who argues in his book Student Plagiarism in yield results (Ibid.). an Online World that “the Internet has helped to turn It is actually easy to catch plagiarism when the copying plagiarism into an endemic disease in universities and and pasting had been done from the Internet, and research institutions” (Smith, 2008). Of course, especially with the use of above-mentioned anti- plagiarism was not born with the Internet. There have plagiarism tools. One simply has to upload the been cases of intellectual dishonesty even before the suspect paper and, according to Jessica Dye (2007), age of technology. One such example involved a very “each word pattern is checked against the full text of rich heiress in the U.S. who was forced to return her original sources numbering in the dozens up to the degree when her ex-roommate revealed to a “gossip billions, and then the system generates a report magazine” that the heiress had paid her to do term highlighting suspicious passages”. Another of these papers and numerous homework for her (Embleton, et anti-plagiarism tools is PlagiatInform, a search tool that al., 2007). The Internet simply made it easier for was released in June 2007 by SearchInform intellectually dishonest people to be dishonest. Technologies, Inc.

When students have learned how to evaluate sites and But more than “catching the thief”, librarians should information, it would hopefully follow that they will learn work with the school or academic institution to curb to use information properly. plagiarism by incorporating instructions about it into library orientation programs. These programs can We can also help alert professors and teachers to include some “guidelines for plagiarism prevention”, sites that offer papers that tempt students to plagiarize among them: (1) explaining what plagiarism means; such as OtherPeople's Papers, a Web site that offers (2) explaining why it is wrong to plagiarize; and (3) term papers online (Ibid.). Usually, it would pay to warning library users of the serious consequences of spend time identifying these pro-plagiarism Web sites plagiarism (plagiarism.org/learning_center). Warning so we can warn the teachers about them. Richer signs against both copyright violations and plagiarism libraries can likewise subscribe to anti-plagiarism can also be posted in prominent places in the library, services like Turnitin and Plagiarism Guru (Embleton, particularly in computer services sections that are et al.). Another tool is iParadigm's anti-plagiarism tool made available to the public. and digital assessment suite. The latter can be used as a standalone tool or as an integrated part of Librarians should also be knowledgeable about school's content management and At present, in our reference sources as well as familiarize themselves present state of technology in the Philippines, teachers with standard citation conventions and pass on this catch students who plagiarize in a round about way: knowledge to the academics as well as the students they notice a certain change in style, flawless grammar who come to the library to do their research. Libraries and sentence construction, and other tell-tale signs. can also provide access to Web-based citation Then, the more diligent and those who have access to management software such as RefWorks.com the Internet try to find out if there was copying (Dames). It is important for the librarian to help (especially if no sources have been cited) by keying in students and even academics realize the nature of certain words and phrases to see if they can find plagiarism and to help them avoid committing it by something online that matches. If sources have been ignorance. As earlier mentioned, many students who cited but the student did not place any quotation plagiarize do not really realize they have committed a marks, making it appear that the text was a summary grave act of dishonesty. They simply do not know how of the source, it is much easier because all the teacher to cite. Therefore, libraries should include instructions has to do is go to the cited source. This is tedious on proper citation in library orientation programs, make process (I do it myself and so I know how tedious this available citation manuals and disseminate these can be). One good site to search from in this tedious largely to the library users. Needless to say, we must process is Google Scholar because it searches a wide not forget to cite our sources.
