Note cards - one or more per source 2 column-note or Linear notes - keep track of source(s) in the margins As soon as you find a good source, make a note of bibliographic info. Ask for a Works Cited worksheet from the library.
Schlozman, S. (2013, March/April). Cheating in the age of Facebook. Psychology Today, 47-8. Harvard Cheating Scandal o 125 students cheated on a take-home exam with a no-collaboration policy, using Facebook In the age of likes, tweets & tags – it’s difficult to navigate between media How do you cite on-line collaboration? o Facebook discussion o Online forum thread ANSWER: see APA reference guide! (p. 215)
60.8% of college students admitted to cheating 16.5% didn’t regret it only 20% admitted to it in the 1940s Majority of cheaters believe it’s necessary for success 55% of college professors say cheating has increased and believe digital tools play a role in plagiarism
See section 2.2 of your Academic Honesty handout “Some candidates seem to believe that because the internet is in the public domain and largely uncontrolled, information can be taken from websites without the need for acknowledgment.” “Simply stating the search engine […] is not acceptable.” BE CAREFUL of background reading o Keep track of ALL SOURCES used, even if not directly quoting – you may wish to go back to it later o Cite especially when using specialized terms o Teachers can tell if your language level or style seems beyond your reach
No need to cite common knowledge, but err on the side of caution Every time you use data or more than two words from a source, or one specialized word unique to a source If you use an image, graph, or chart If you put the information into your own words, put in an in- text citation (author, year).
Integrate quotes into your own sentences. Set up your quote or paraphrase, introducing how the data will serve your thesis. After your quote, provide analysis (explain how the data serves your thesis). Include the author’s name, the year of publication, and page numbers If there are 3 or more authors, cite them all the first time around, then use “Author, et al.” If no page numbers are found, or you have any other question, see the APA reference guide
Use if the quote is shorter than 40 words If the quote is in the middle of a sentence, put your parenthetical reference immediately after the quote & continue your sentence: Ex: Interpreting these results, Robbins et al. (2003) suggested that the “therapists in dropout cases may have inadvertently validated parental negativity about the adolescent without adequately responding to the adolescent’s needs or concerns” (p. 541), contributing to an overall climate of negativity.
If the quote finishes at the end of the sentence Ex: Confusing this issue is the overlapping nature of roles in palliative care, whereby “medical needs are met by those in the medical disciplines; nonmedical needs may be addressed by anyone on the team” (Csikai & Chalitin, 2006, p. 112).
If your quote is more than 40 words o Put into a block of text with no quotation marks o Indent every line ½ an inch from the margin; if another paragraph comes in, indent a further ½ inch Ex: Others have contradicted this view: Co-presence does not ensure intimate interaction among all group members. Consider large-scale social gatherings in which hundreds or thousands of people gather in a location to perform a ritual or celebrate an event. In these instances, participants are able to see the visible manifestation of the group, the physical gathering, yet their ability to make direct, intimate connections is limited by the magnitude of the assembly. (Purcell, 1997, pp. 111-112)
If you mention the author in the sentence, you do not need to repeat the name in the parenthetical reference. Ex: According to Smith, blah blah (2007, p. 250). Vs. In a recent study, blah blah (Smith, 2007, p. 250). If you switch to a new study, you must make it clear by introducing the new reference. Likewise, if you switch back and forth, you must use the author’s name again. Always aim for clarity.
Digital Object Identifiers Provides a means of persistent identification May be hidden under a button labeled Article, CrossRef, PubMed, or another vendor name If no DOI is found, use the URL General Reference form: Author, A.A., Author, B.B., & Author, C.C. (year). Title of article. Title of Periodical, xx, pp-pp. doi:xx.xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx If no DOI, use this format: Retrieved from http://www.xxxxxxx
