Alan Lewis MMBA6501-5 Week 4 Discussion Assignment – Plagiarism and Academic Integrity Dr. Richard Bush: I have learned the following three things about plagiarism: 1. Plagiarism is purely not giving credit where credit is due. You cannot take the ideas or work of another and pass them off as your own. 2. I learned how to distinguish between what needs to be cited and what does not. Common knowledge like there are 50 states in the U.S does not need a citation whereas when each entered the union likely does. 3. I learned when it is best to use direct quotations and how to do it accurately in addition to when it is better to paraphrase. You cannot use a partial quote that changes the original idea; and when you paraphrase, you must communicate the idea in your own words not words that are only slightly different from the original statement. I will use the above knowledge to consistently create documents that give the proper credit to the proper sources in the proper fashion.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
