As I engage this unit’s Read and Attend assignments, I find that my understanding of plagiarism is not as fully developed as I had previously thought. Our Unit 3 Attend assignment shares that “in a general sense plagiarism may be caused by carelessness” and these circumstances frequently precipitate the lack of care required while writing (Bethel University, 2014, p. 11). The academic integrity tutorial provided additional information which I found valuable as well. Common themes within each unit assignment provide strands of continuity, while assisting with a more comprehensive understanding. It is my opinion, the type of plagiarism that is hardest for me to avoid is “plagiaphrasing”, also known as “lazy paraphrasing” (Bethel University, 2014, p. 12).
In Dudley Delvin’s “Plagiarism in America,” Delvin expresses his opinion about the growing plagiarism epidemic in America’s schools and presents a solution to correct the situation. The modern student body has begun to view plagiarism as a common practice since much of the information used is available instantaneously. Students often fail to see the issue of using another individual’s ideas as their own since the ideas are made public, allowing others to obtain the information. To solve the epidemic, Delvin proposes a solution that increases the surveillance of student work and incorporates zero tolerance policies that punish students for the use of plagiarism.
Every college has policies about plagiarism. These policies have similar punishment, such as giving failure, suspension, and expulsion depends on the number of times (doing plagiarism). However, the colleges also have different punishment. For example, Centennial college has more detail policy than George Brown college. On the other hand, George Brown college’s policy is stronger than Centennial college, such as there are no warnings.
As I stated in my DQ response, plagiarism can result in broken trust, damaged reputation, and can severely damage your career. Plagiarism isn 't just sinful, or immoral, it is illegal. There are some that are lucky enough to be given second chances, but most people that plagiarize in the professional world are terminated from there job. In any professional writing career, plagiarism is a career ender. It doesn 't just get you fired, it labels you unhirable due to ethical misconduct.
Plagiarism is a huge ordeal; whether it be a college research paper or an author writing a story that seems vaguely like another well-known story. What is plagiarism? According to the Merriam-Webster Dictionary plagiarism is: to steal and pass off the ideas or words of another as one's own, to use another's production without crediting the source, to commit literary theft, or to present as new and original an idea or product derived from an existing source. If someone plagiarizes in college, that person can end up failing the class and possibly be kicked out of school. If an author “plagiarizes” another author’s piece of work, what happens then? This is the case for Nella Larsen’s “Sanctuary”. It has been said that she copied this story from
My schooling and upbringing have reinforced the importance of honestly and integrity. This year, in AP Research, we spent a number of classes discussing plagiarism and how to avoid it — some students, in paraphrasing the ideas of others and forgetting to cite correcting, have accidentally committed the act of plagiarism. As a result, I have learned the importance of citing correctly. I have also learnt how to clearly distinguish to readers what points were products of my own thinking, and what ideas were created and presented by others. Putting in countless citations is laborious and tedious, but ultimately worth the effort: plagiarism should be avoided at all costs.
After taking (In) English 102 I learned the difference between paraphrasing and plagiarism. After reading an article written by Brian Martin I wrote a research journal that (outlined) how his article helped me understand this distinction. In my article I wrote “After reading the article written by Brian Martin I learned how it is important to know the difference between paraphrasing and plagiarizing, while many people lack the to understand the difference between paraphrasing and plagiarizing Brian martin very easily draws a line and helps his readers to understand that why it is important for writers to know the difference and how they can avoid making such mistake, his discussion about how plagiarism should not be just limited on school levels
I think the hardest plagiarism to avoid is paraphrasing. The reason I think paraphrasing is the hardest is because sometimes its hard to paraphrase someone's else's work without saying just about everything that they stated without getting your point across to your professor. In the academic integrity video I failed the paraphrasing section and I believe I failed that section because I paraphrased the paragraph wrong, by saying wrong I mean I don't think I put my words together well enough stating what the author said properly. By me not paraphrasing it properly I failed , so that let me know that when writing papers this term I need to work on my paraphrasing a lot.
Could you imagine your work being stolen? Could you imagine your work being credited for someone else 's? Could you imagine the thief getting famous, or at most honored for your work? It would feel horrible right, having all of your hard work being stolen. Well, you can stop plagiarism by citing, paraphrasing, quoting, and using common
"Academic Intergrity represents the core of Grand Canyon University" which is a great foundation for students and faculty to live by. Intergrity grows within a person and in my opinion that determines if you are a tustworthy person. Having academic intergrity helps with preventing plagiarism. Academic Intergrity can lead to giving true facts on the paper and helps with your writing letting you be able to grow as a researcher and writer. Plagiarism in my opinion is copying someones else work it is way t prevent this. I remember in high school they taught us a method to prevent plagiarism; read the document and reread the document and as you go take notes out of the document. In graduate you should always have academic intergrity.
By definition plagiarism is “the act of taking someone else’s work and trying to pass it off as if it were your own.” There are many different types of plagiarism, such as having someone write a paper for you, copying somers paper or just copying something right from the internet. Plagiarism is wrong in many ways because if you are caught you are only hurting yourself. You hurt yourself by having teachers or professors question who you really are. Plagiarism is cheating. It’s not fair to the people who actually write what you are stealing because they get no credit for it. There is never anything good that comes from plagiarism.
One of the most crucial traits a scholar can develop is a high level of self-efficacy which is essential to academic success. The ability to achieve and to recognize that success can come from being industrious should be the deterring factor for a student who considers committing the act of plagiarism. What is plagiarism one might ask? Voelker, Love & Pentina (2012) define plagiarism as, “putting forward another’s work as your own” (p. 37). This very pervasive problem plagues the education system, and many researchers and psychologist seek to explain the driving force behind students’ academic dishonesty. Woith, Jenkins & Kerber (2012, states that, “The Center for Academic Integrity (CAI) defines academic integrity as ‘a commitment, even in the face of adversity, to five fundamental values: honesty, trust, fairness, respect, and responsibility (Center for Academic Integrity, n.d.)’ (p. 253). Whether the act of plagiarism is knowingly or inadvertently done, it is still a moral dilemma. Honz, Kiewra & Yang (2010) posit that, “most studies report that about 75 percent of students cheat” (p. 10). As a result, this action plan is tailored towards showcasing the various methodologies and resources that student nurses can utilize in order to combat the act of plagiarism before, during and after an assignment.
