On Plagiarism: Part II

In my past post on plagiarism, I discussed some of the pitfalls of not discussing plagiarism in a seminar class. Often, the students are not aware that what they are doing (or not doing) can be considered plagiarism.

In anticipation of a plagiarism instruction session that I am giving to a colleague's seminar class, I thought I would post this "nifty plagiarism infographic" that asks questions to determine the severity of plagiarism.

In scholarly writing, it is expected that an author use a considerable number of footnotes to substantiate assertions and arguments given in the text. There is absolutely no reason not to give credit where credit is due. And this infographic gives an idea of when credit is due.
