Plagiarism
From Purdue Online Writing Lab (OWL) - http://owl.english.purdue.edu/owl/resource/589/1/
 Plagiarism, which is the uncredited use (both intentional and
unintentional) of somebody else's words or ideas.
 Many beginning writers aren't aware of or don't know how to
follow the many of these rules of research and proper citation.
 Gaining a familiarity of these rules is critically important.
 A charge of plagiarism can have severe consequences,
including expulsion from a university or loss of a job, not
to mention a writer's loss of credibility and professional
standing.
Is It Plagiarism Yet?
From Purdue OWL - http://owl.english.purdue.edu/owl/resource/589/02/
 There are some actions that can almost unquestionably be
labeled plagiarism. Some of these include:
 buying, stealing, or borrowing a paper (including, of course,




copying an entire paper or article from the Web)
hiring someone to write your paper for you
copying large sections of text from a source without quotation
marks or proper citation.
using the words of a source too closely when paraphrasing
(where quotation marks should have been used)
building on someone's ideas without citing their spoken or
written work
When Do We Give Credit?
 The key to avoiding plagiarism is to make sure you give credit where it is
due. This may be credit for something somebody said, wrote, emailed,
drew, or implied. Here, then, is a brief list of what needs to be credited
or documented:
 Words or ideas presented in a magazine, book, newspaper, song, TV
program, movie, Web page, computer program, letter, advertisement,
or any other medium
 Information you gain through interviewing or conversing with another
person, face to face, over the phone, or in writing
 When you copy the exact words or a unique phrase
 When you reprint any diagrams, illustrations, charts, pictures, or other
visual materials
 When you reuse or repost any electronically-available media, including
images, audio, video, or other media
When Do We Give Credit? (cont.)
 Bottom line, document any words, ideas, or other productions that
originate somewhere outside of you.
 There are, of course, certain things that do not need documentation
or credit, including:
 Writing your own lived experiences, your own observations and



insights, your own thoughts, and your own conclusions about a subject
When you are writing up your own results obtained through lab or field
experiments
When you use your own artwork, digital photographs, video, audio, etc.
When you are using "common knowledge," things like folklore,
common sense observations, myths, urban legends, and historical
events (but not historical documents)
When you are using generally-accepted facts, e.g., pollution is bad for
the environment, including facts that are accepted within particular
discourse communities, e.g., in the field of composition studies,
"writing is a process" is a generally-accepted fact.
Deciding if Something is "Common
Knowledge"
 Something is considered common knowledge if you find the
same information undocumented in a number of credible
sources.
 Information the reader will already know or could easily find
in general reference sources.
 When in doubt, cite!
Best Practices for Research and
Drafting
From Purdue OWL - http://owl.english.purdue.edu/owl/resource/589/03/
Reading and Note-Taking
 In your notes, always mark someone else's words with a big Q,
for quote, or use big quotation marks
 Indicate in your notes which ideas are taken from sources with
a big S, and which are your own insights (ME)
 When information comes from sources, record relevant
documentation in your notes (book and article titles; URLs on
the Web)
Do’s & Don’ts
Writing Your Thesis or Dissertation
 Write for one hour every day
 Collect and save reference information for every paper you
read
 Get the Thesis template early
 Know which journals you will submit your work to and their
format requirements
