PLAGIARISM MEANS THE FOLLOWING:


1. YOU CANNOT PASS OFF SOMEONE ELSE'S WRITING AS YOUR OWN. ALL ARTICLES MUST BE WRITTEN IN YOUR OWN WORDS.

2. YOU CANNOT USE INFORMATION TAKEN FROM ANOTHER NEWS STORY WITHOUT ATTRIBUTING IT (CREDITING IT) TO THE SOURCE.

 

ALL STORIES MUST BE A PRODUCT OF YOUR OWN REPORTING AND YOUR OWN WRITING. IF YOU USE INFORMATION FROM A PRESS RELEASE, A NEWS STORY FOUND ONLINE OR IN PRINT OR FROM ANY OTHER SOURCE, YOU MUST ATTRIBUTE IT TO THAT SOURCE.

 

EXAMPLE: "THE NEW YORK TIMES REPORTED THAT THE PERCENTAGE OF COLLEGE STUDENTS ENGAGING IN PLAGIARISM IS INCREASING."

 

IF YOU COPY WRITING FROM A PRESS RELEASE OR ARTICLE AND TRY TO PASS IT OFF AS YOUR OWN WORK, THE ASSIGNMENT WILL RECEIVE AN AUTOMATIC "F" AND YOU WILL BE REFERRED FOR DISCIPLINARY ACTION BY THE COLLEGE. THIS CAN RESULT ON A PERMANENT MARK ON YOUR TRANSCRIPT THAT COULD NEGATIVELY IMPACT YOUR ABILITY TO TRANSFER TO A FOUR-YEAR UNIVERSITY.
