Avoiding Plagiarism with Correct Documentation Dr. Karen Petit Plagiarism and Communication Mediums Plagiarism can happen in any communication medium:

paragraphs essays research papers visual aids business letters speeches poems conversations

films reports songs novels newspaper articles Web sites Plagiarism in Different Environments Plagiarism can happen in different environments: Conversations at Work Published Communications Academic Settings Conversations at Work

Conversations at Work We could sell more of the new product if it were offered in really bright colors, like red. Joe Thats a great idea of yours, Joe! Ill tell our boss about it when I meet with her later today. Conversations at Work Plagiarism at Work

We should make the new product in really bright colors, like red, yellow, or green. You stole my idea!!! Joe That idea of yours is really great! You are one of our companys most creative employees. Conversations at Work

Giving Credit to People: Correct, Ethical and Legal Joe suggested that we make our product in bright colors, like red. I love the idea of red, but we could use other bright colors, too. Thanks for giving me credit for my idea. Joe Joes idea is really creative, and your summary of his idea is well done. I also like your added suggestion about the other colors.

Plagiarism Defined with Use of the MLA Documentation System Plagiarism has been defined as the unauthorized use or close imitation of the language and thoughts of another author and the representation of them as one's own original work (Dictionary.com). Work Cited Plagiarism. Dictionary.com. Dictionary.com, 2010. Web. 2 June 2010. In this definition of plagiarism, quotation marks have been placed

around the borrowed words. The source of the words, Dictionary.com, is stated at the end of the quotation in an in-text parenthetical citation. In this example of a bibliography page, the additional information explains to readers and/or listeners about the work that has been cited in the parenthetical citation. Published Communications Published Communications

Employees who plagiarize in published communications, as well as in other mediums, will hurt their credibility and could be fired: A CBS news producer was fired (CBS). An editor for a Florida magazine was fired (Stableford). Academic Settings Academic Settings The CCRI Student Handbook defines plagiarism: The term plagiarism includes, but is not limited to, the use, by paraphrase or direct quotation, of the published or unpublished work of

another person without full and clear acknowledgment. It also includes the unacknowledged use of materials prepared by another person or agency engaged in the selling of term papers or other academic materials. A student who plagiarizes can be suspended or expelled: [V]iolations of academic integrity may result in suspension or expulsion from the College (Policy on Academic Dishonesty). Plagiarism: Wrong, Unethical, and Illegal Plagiarism is wrong, unethical, and illegal in work, academic, and other settings.

Plagiarism will affect a persons credibility and can hurt a career, as is demonstrated by what happened to a New York Times reporter. Someone who plagiarizes can be sued, as is illustrated by a case heard in the Court of Appeals in Connecticut ( Coster v. Duquette). Avoiding Plagiarism by Correctly Using a Documentation System

Whenever we borrow words, ideas, pictures, symbols, musical notes, structures, or other items, we need to document (give credit to) the source of each borrowed item. A quotation, paraphrase, or summary is used to convey borrowed information or words. To connect borrowed information or words to a source(s), one of these documentation systems can be used: ML A AP A Chi cag
