No Web-based sources are allowed , with the exception of Web sites you may be using for primary sources or that I have approved). When you turn in your paper, I will again ask you to provide a list – from “my account” on the library’s website – of books you checked out (or obtained through inter-library loan). Code of Student Academic Integrity: All students are required to read and abide by the Code of Student Academic Integrity. Violations of the Code of Student Academic Integrity, including plagiarism, will result in disciplinary action as provided in the Code. Definitions and examples of plagiarism are set forth in the Code. The Code is available from the Dean of Students Office or online at: Plagiarism: The most depressing duty a professor must carry out is the filing of charges with the Office of Student Conduct and the Judicial Board—yet this happens every semester, and it is far more distressing for the student who has ruined his/her academic career and has “found guilty of plagiarism” stamped on their transcripts. Anyone found guilty of plagiarism in this course (for any written assignment) will receive an “F” for the entire semester, and I will report him/her to Student Affairs. Plagiarism is not simply the direct theft of someone else’s work (e.g., copying/pasting from an Internet source), but also includes: - turning in someone else's work as your own - copying words or ideas from someone else without giving credit - failing to put a quotation in quotation marks - giving incorrect information about the source of a quotation - changing words but copying the sentence structure of a source without giving credit - copying so many words or ideas from a source that it makes up the majority of your work, whether you give credit or not [ 1 ] From the UNC Charlotte Code of Student Academic Integrity : D. PLAGIARISM . Intentionally or knowingly presenting the work of another as one's own (i.e., without proper acknowledgement of the source). The sole exception to the requirement of acknowledging sources is when the ideas, information, etc., are common knowledge. (NOTE: For more information regarding plagiarism, see PLAGIARISM Appendix.) Typical Examples: Submitting as one's own work of a "ghost writer" or commercial writing service; directly quoting from a source without citation; paraphrasing or summarizing another's work without acknowledging the source; using facts, figures, graphs, charts or information without acknowledgement of the source. Plagiarism may occur orally and in writing. It may involve computer programs and files, research designs, distinctive figures of speech, ideas and images, or generally any "information" which belongs to another. Please read all these materials in this section of the syllabus closely and help UNC Charlotte maintain its high standards: 1
