PLAGIARISM: using anyone else’s ideas, words, graphics, music, or other material without giving them credit (citing the material).  Paraphrasing and sampling, when the sources are not cited, are examples of plagiarism.


EXAMPLES OF PLAGIARISM WITH EXPLANATIONS:

Carlos and Eddie’s Guide to Bruin Success with Less Stress (UCLA): intellectual property, file sharing, citing and documenting sources, academic dishonesty

Indiana University:

Plagarism Policy (Department of Sociology, Anthropology & Criminal Justice, State University of New Jersey Rutgers-Camden)

A Visit to Copyright Bay (University of St. Francis)

Academic Integrity in the Classroom, Resources for Students (University of Michigan)

EXERCISES:

You Quote It, You Note It (Vaughan Memorial Library, Acadia University)

Academic Integrity Quiz (from University of Alberta)

Plagiarism Court : a Flash tutorial and a quiz from Fairfield University

Plagiarism & Academic Integrity at Rutgers University

Exercise on Citation and Paraphrase from Grinnell College Writing Lab: the first section provides models on how writers incorporate words and ideas from a source. The second section asks you to perform the same tasks modeled in the first section. That is, it asks you to paraphrase, cite a long quotation, cite words or short phrases, and cite ideas.
