2 Plagiarism What Is And What Is Not Plagiarism Image:

3 Plagiarism is using someone else’s work without giving them credit. Image:

4 How Do You Know When to Give Credit? Background Image: Question Mark:

5 In your writing, you must give credit whenever you use information that you found in a source (unless it is considered common knowledge*). Image:

6 Image: What Is— “Common Knowledge”? Common knowledge is information that is widely known or widely available. For Example-- There are 12 inches in a foot. Chicago is in Illinois. Etc.

7 Always give your source for: Quotations (Exact Words) Needs “ ” Paraphrased Information Summarized Information Facts That Are Not Common Knowledge Ideas, including opinions & thoughts about facts Maps, Charts, Graphs, Data, & Other Visual or Statistical Information

8 Sometimes Plagiarism Is Blatant And Obvious Image:

9 Like— Copying a lab report from another student Buying a research paper over the Internet Copying and pasting into your document

10 Image: But Plagiarism Can Also Be Accidental

11 Use these tips to avoid “Accidental Plagiarism”: Take brief concise notes Note the source of your information When taking notes put “ ”around words you copy so you don’t forget they’re not yours When notes include an idea—note whether its yours or the source’s Check your final text to make sure that you did not accidently use wording from source

12 Unacceptable paraphrasing and misuse of credits are the most common causes of accidental plagiarism. The following are examples of these problems—and some solutions.

13 A pro-market reformer, Vladimir Putin has vowed to revitalize the foundering economy, fight corruption, subvert Communism, and build a strong Russia. —Beth Rowen, Vladimir Putin: President and Prime Minister of Russia Source A pro-market reformer, Vladimir Putin vows to revitalize the ______ economy, fight corruption, subvert Communism, and build a strong nation. Problem: Uncredited Quotation The writer has dropped and changed a few words, but otherwise just copied the source. Remember! When words are taken from a source, they must be 1) copied exactly; 2) enclosed in quotation marks; and 3) followed by a credit.

14 A pro-market reformer, Vladimir Putin has vowed to revitalize the foundering economy, fight corruption, subvert Communism, and build a strong Russia. —Beth Rowen, Vladimir Putin: President and Prime Minister of Russia Source A democratic reformer who is pro-market, Vladimir Putin has promised to reenergize the failing economy, battle corruption, destroy Communism, and develop a powerful Russia. Problem: Unacceptable Paraphrasing The writer has changed a few words, but the sentence structure and much of the wording are the same as in the source. The writing is too similar to count as original. Remember! An acceptable paraphrase changes both the sentence structure and the wording. So, what if the writer added a source credit to the end?

15 A pro-market reformer, Vladimir Putin has vowed to revitalize the foundering economy, fight corruption, subvert Communism, and build a strong Russia. —Beth Rowen, Vladimir Putin: President and Prime Minister of Russia Source A pro-market reformer, Vladimir Putin has promised to reenergize the failing economy, battle corruption, destroy Communism, and develop a powerful Russia. (Rowen.) Problem: Misused Source Credit The writer does give a source credit. However, the paraphrasing is unacceptable, and it does not become acceptable just because a source credit is added. The purpose of a source credit is to tell where the information came from. Unless the writer is using a quotation, the information must always be restated in an original way. Remember! The writer must either copy the source exactly and use quotation marks, or paraphrase the source acceptably. Both options require source credits.

16 A pro-market reformer, Vladimir Putin has vowed to revitalize the foundering economy, fight corruption, subvert Communism, and build a strong Russia. —Beth Rowen, Vladimir Putin: President and Prime Minister of Russia Source Vladimir Putin has promised various reforms. (Rowen.) Jumpstarting Russia’s economy, fighting government dishonesty, and strengthening the nation are among his goals. Problem: Misplaced Source Credit The writer has placed the source credit in the wrong place-at the beginning, rather than the end, of a passage. Remember! Credit your source immediately after you have used it.

17 A pro-market reformer, Vladimir Putin has vowed to revitalize the foundering economy, fight corruption, subvert Communism, and build a strong Russia. —Beth Rowen, Vladimir Putin: President and Prime Minister of Russia Source A pro-market “democratic reformer”, Vladimir Putin has vowed to “revitalize the floundering economy,” fight corruption, and build a strong Russia. (Rowen.) Problem: Mix of Credited and Uncredited Quotations The writer has used quotation marks around some of the words, which is the correct way to treat words that are copied exactly. However, the writer has copied other words without using quotation marks. Remember! All exact words from a source need to be enclosed in quotation marks. Using quotation marks in your research notes will help you remember where words came from.

18 A pro-market reformer, Vladimir Putin has vowed to revitalize the foundering economy, fight corruption, subvert Communism, and build a strong Russia. —Beth Rowen, Vladimir Putin: President and Prime Minister of Russia Source Putin has promised various reforms, including better government integrity. He is seen as wanting to advance both democracy and economic growth. (Rowen.) Solution: Successful Paraphrasing This is successful because: The writer successfully paraphrases the source, changing both the sentence structure and the wording. The writer used a source credit after the information.

19 A pro-market reformer, Vladimir Putin has vowed to revitalize the foundering economy, fight corruption, subvert Communism, and build a strong Russia. —Beth Rowen, Vladimir Putin: President and Prime Minister of Russia Source Rowen calls Putin “a pro-market democratic reformer”, noting his promises to advance integrity and economic growth. (Rowen.) Solution: Successful Paraphrasing with a Credited Quotation This is successful because: The writer successfully paraphrases the source, changing both the sentence structure and the wording. The words that where copied exactly from the source have been enclosed by quotation marks. The writer used a source credit after the information.
