3 Your academic responsibility The University of Toronto’s Code of Behaviour on Academic Matters (1995): Covers academic and scholarly integrity Applies to all U of T faculty and students Outlines punitive actions It is your responsibility to read and abide by the academic code “Not knowing” the code is not an excuse for committing an academic offense http://uoft.me/Academic-Code

5 Offences outlined by the Code (Section B) It is an academic offence for a faculty member to approve of any of the offences previously outlined. It is an academic offence for a faculty member or a student to: Alter, forge, or falsify any academic record Engage in cheating or academic dishonesty

It will take too much time to go back. Do I still have to cite anything?

She gave me permission to use it. Do I still need to cite the song?

9 How to avoid plagiarism Use references/works cited/bibliography AND in- text citations Beware of cutting and pasting Use quotation marks when directly quoting Paraphrase carefully Be clear in distinguishing your ideas from those you are citing Take notes carefully and fully Over cite rather than under cite Use common knowledge judiciously More tips: http://uoft.me/how-not-to-plagiarizehttp://uoft.me/how-not-to-plagiarize

10 (a)Claude Monet was an Impressionist painter. (b)Claude Monet was the most important painter of the Impressionist movement. Which statement expresses common knowledge? Image source: Monet, C.

11 1.You will be given a direct quotation from the following journal article: Krmpotich, C. (2010). Remembering and repatriation: The production of kinship, memory and respect. Journal of Material Culture, 15(2): 157-179. 2. You will be given an example of a student’s paraphrase. 3. Spot the problem. This exercise is adapted from the video 1.4 Changing some words but copying whole phrases produced by The Critical Thinker Academy (http://www.criticalthinkeracademy.com/14-changing-some-words- but-copying-whole-phrases.html).

12 Quotation: “As the co-production of kinship and memory is explored, there is a need to consider how memories are shared and made collective – or isolated and forgotten – and even the manner in which memories are restored. Haida repatriation efforts demonstrate the centrality of material culture in the construction, collectivization and restoration of memory” (Krmpotich, 2010, p. 176). Student’s paraphrase: Museums and cultural institutions must consider how memories are shared and made collective, and how memories are restored. Haida repatriation efforts demonstrate the central importance of material culture in the construction, collectivization and restoration of memory.

Haida repatriation efforts demonstrate the central importance of material culture in the construction, collectivization and restoration of memory.

14 Quotation: “As the co-production of kinship and memory is explored, there is a need to consider how memories are shared and made collective – or isolated and forgotten – and even the manner in which memories are restored. Haida repatriation efforts demonstrate the centrality of material culture in the construction, collectivization and restoration of memory” (Krmpotich, 2010, p. 176). Student’s paraphrase: Krmpotich’s research into Haida repatriation efforts emphasizes the vital importance of material culture in creating, sharing, and reinstating collective memory within aboriginal communities (2010). An example of an appropriate paraphrase

15 What information would you need in order to give correct attribution for the following quotation? “You don’t sit down and say ‘I’m going to start plagiarizing now.’ You are just going through different ideas and you read a lot and you take notes, you’re working on something, you go away, you read something, you write it down … I’m a fairly prolific reader, so sometimes I just read ideas that meshed with my own.”

16 Who said it: Chris Spence Source of quotation: a newspaper article Who wrote the article: Kristin Rushowy Title of the article: Chris Spence breaks silence on plagiarism scandal Name of newspaper: The Toronto Star Date of the article: July 25, 2013 Page number/URL to locate the article: http://www.thestar.com/news/gta/2013/07/25 /chris_spence_breaks_silence_on_plagiarism_sc andal.html http://www.thestar.com/news/gta/2013/07/25 /chris_spence_breaks_silence_on_plagiarism_sc andal.html

17 In my latest paper, I inserted my own sketch of a public domain photo. Since the photo is no longer under copyright, I don’t need to cite anything. True or false? Image source: Evans, W. (1934). License Photo Studio, New York. [Photograph]. Retrieved from: http://search.getty.edu/museum/records/musobject?objectid=52307. Digital image courtesy of the Getty's Open Content Program. http://search.getty.edu/museum/records/musobject?objectid=52307

18 You must cite: All published materials, regardless of format Quotations Facts, statistics, tables, figures Paraphrases Summaries Other people’s ideas and opinions Photos, paintings, sculptures Designs, logos, templates Code, coding regimens, standards Lectures E-mails, letters, phone calls

19 How to cite Find out which citation style your instructor prefers for assignments Be consistent within a single work Most citation styles require a combination of in- text citations and a bibliography at the end of your paper More tips: http://uoft.me/documentation- formatshttp://uoft.me/documentation- formats

20 Image source: Degas, E. (1872-1877). The Convalescent [Painting]. Retrieved from http://search.getty.edu/museum/records/musobject?objectid=217373. Digital image courtesy of the Getty's Open Content Program. http://search.getty.edu/museum/records/musobject?objectid=217373 Because of a family crisis, I had to rush through my essay. I don’t have time to create a bibliography, but since I have a few in-text citations, I won’t be penalized. True or false?
