Misunderstanding plagiarism is a valid excuse for committing it
The Library's resources should be at the center of your research for discussion board posts, papers, and projects.
You are writing a paper on the existence of the Bigfoot. Your objective is to compile as much credible evidence as possible, from both those who promote his existence and those who are skeptical; you want a strictly fact-based, non-sensational presentation so the facts "speak for themselves." You are willing to conclude whatever your evidence most strongly suggests. In your research, you locate a popular book titled Demystifying the Mysterious: Sasquatch Among Us written by Horst Langaard who purports to have tracked and seen several of the creatures over a period of years. His book reads convincingly, with many eye-witness interviews and documentation from his personal wilderness studies, although you notice two misspellings within the first twenty pages. Curious, you perform a web search on the publisher, Red House, and find that H. A. Lang is the Executive Editor. Searching further on the author, you find that he has lectured on this subject for 18 years, mostly to small venues, and naturally, he has his supporters and detractors. Finally, you come upon a court record from 12 years ago in which Mr. Langaard was charged and found guilty of extortion. Would you consider Demystifying the Mysterious: Sasquatch Among Us a credible source for your paper?
Which of the following is an example of self-plagiarism?
The following accurately defines plagiarism: Literary theft. Plagiarism occurs when a writer duplicates another writer's language or ideas and then calls the work his or her own
To quote an author and include his or her name in the text of your paper constitutes an adequate citation.
Copying text from Cliff's Notes, pasting them into the body of your paper, and then moving phrases or words around and changing words to make the text your own is not a form of plagiarism.
