anything and everything they can get their hands on to help in their written assignments. In all matters, a highly professional writing style and manner of presentation is required.G)Reference Citation PolicyAll written projects and exams turned in for this course represent original independent work. Especially important is the need to document original sources of information relied upon, and to give proper credit to anyone who helped you with your written project. Footnotes must be complete and informative. The purpose of footnoting is to help the reader assess the writer'sindependent contribution to the written matter in question, and make it quick and easy for the reader to consult original sources for more detailed examination. If you benefited from the helpful comments or editing input of others, thank them inyour first footnote. Other footnotes will cite factual sources of information.H)The issue of digital plagiarism has raised concerns about ethics, student writing experiences, and academic integrity. We subscribe to a digital plagiarism detectionprogram, which may be used to check papers submitted in this course. Papers are submitted both in hardcopy and a digital format (Blackboard digital drop box) so that your paper can be checked against web pages and databases of existing papers. Although you may never have engaged in intentional plagiarism, many students do incorporate sources without citations; this program can alert me to your academic needs.I)Author, article title, publication title, date, and page numbers are all key components of a useful citation. For this course, business periodicals and articles on the Internet offer a wealth of pertinent information.2 Ethical considerations require that all relevant sources be fully cited so that each student's independent contribution can be accurately determined. Plagiarism includes any aspect of claiming the work of others as your own, and is strictly forbidden. \J)Written investment projects are due no later than the start of class on the December 3rd. Make sure your report is turned in on my desk in our classroom when class is called into session. Your report is late if a hard copy is not turned in by the start of class on the date indicated. Written assignments that are submittedlate receive a zero grade.Page 11
