1 + 300 Teenage Boys Will Demonstrate 5 Types of E-Plagiarism Terry Darr, MLS Loyola Blakefield

2 + What is E-Plagiarism? Plagiarism involving electronic resources – Internet, research subscription databases. 2

3 + Loyola Blakefield: Est

4 + I Do This Work So You Won’t Have To… Lies Excuses Lack of attention to detail Busy & overworked “I won’t get caught!” 4

5 + Method #1: Cause Confusion Use more than one Internet source written by a single author throughout the research paper. (Hickman) 5

6 + MLA: (Hickman) Hickman, Kennedy. “M4 Sherman Tank: a World War II Icon.” Military History New York Times, Web. 21 Nov Hickman, Kennedy. “World War II: Operation Torch.” Military History New York Times, Web. 21 Nov

7 + This would have been correct in the text of this paper… (Hickman, “World War II”) (Hickman, “Sherman Tank”) 7

8 + Method #1a: Cause (More) Confusion: What Is This Source? Is this a print or online source? Wolverton, Mark. “American History 37.3.” Harrisburg, USA. Weidner History Group,

9 + Method #2: “I Know It So It’s Common Knowledge!” Does this need a citation? They [the Japanese army] were placed in the Kurill Islands to avoid common shipping routes, so they weren’t seen by merchant ships on their way to the attack. 9

10 + Who Decides? 10

11 + Method #3: Genuine Theft …feared that the USSR might already be working on a hydrogen bomb and one of them, the arch-hawk, Edward Teller, urged the rapid development of a weapon with an explosive force equivalent to 16 million tons of TNT, 800 times as much as the atomic bombs dropped on Japan in

12 + Method #4: Skip It! I’m Lazy/Afraid/Unskilled/ Sloppy/Overworked/Tired For a myriad of reasons, roughly 5% of boys each year will not cite their sources in entirety or will skip the citations completely. 12

13 + Method #5: Piece together information in ascending order from e-journal pages By 1967, Communist guerrillas, known as the Vietcong, had begun an underground campaign to gain control of South Vietnam (15). The following year, North Vietnam openly acknowledged that they were sponsoring efforts to overthrow Diem’s government and force the United States out of Vietnam altogether (15). In 1963, 45 Americans were killed in Vietnam, then more than doubled the next year to 118. The year 1964 was the turning point for America’s involvement in Vietnam (16). 13

14 + The Signs of E-Plagiarism The vocabulary or the writing is too advanced for the student’s ability level. If the parenthetical citation or Works Cited page looks wrong, the chances are excellent that there is plagiarism of some kind. Specific dates, years, amounts and outcomes are not cited. The student’s paper is pieced together with information in ascending order from a journal article. This also shows a lack of critical thinking! 14

15 + Librarians Can Help: Honor Codes Are Not Enough 1) First year programs for information literacy should have paraphrasing practice. 2) Every academic & public library should provide clear, easy to follow citation models easily accessible on the main web page. 3) Help teachers understand the signs of e- plagiarism in student work products. 15
