  20. Academic Writing – Research and Referencing


  22. Plagiarism and Referencing • What is plagiarism? • the use of the ideas and/or words of others without due acknowledgement. • copying material from the Internet, library books and the work of others without the use of quotation marks and/or acknowledgement of the source. • summarising or paraphrasing another person's work by simply changing a few words without acknowledgement • an assessment offence, and carries major penalties

  23. Avoiding Plagiarism : Differences between References & Citations Citations According to Thomas and Watzman (2005), teenagers seem the most vulnerable to potential negative effects as they use the Internet for more hours than do adults. Reference Thomas, T.S & Watzman, A (2005) Computers and kids: Pulling the plug can protect the planet, Phi Delta Volume 84 Number 8. Retrieved May 10, 2003 from

  24. Avoiding Plagiarism – some samples of citations This is your statement Technology, though useful is never problem free. According to Teicher (1999), “no technology is fail-safe”. In addition, Emmans (2000) has pointed out that students must be made aware of the cyber responsibilities as the solutions designed to address the problems can only do so much as “no software and no policy can be foolproof”. Reference List at the end of the document • Emmans, C. (2000). Internet Ethics. Technos: Quarterly for Education and Technology. Volume 9, Number 1. Retrieved May 10, 2003 from • Teicher, J (1999) An Action Plan For Smart Internet Use. Educational Leadership. Volume 56 Number 5. Retrieved May 7, 2003 from The green texts are your citations – to support your statement

  25. Avoiding Plagiarism - paraphrasing • Paraphrasing • Change text into your own words • Must also include citation e.g. …as stated by Kotler, 2000 According to Hoyer and MacInnis (2001), satisfied customers form the foundation of any successful business. They said that customer satisfaction is critical and it leads to repeat purchase, brand loyalty, and positive word of mouth. Reference List at the end of the document Hoyer, W. D. & MacInnis, D. J., 2001, Consumer Behaviour. 2nd ed., Boston, Houghton Mifflin Company.

  26. Avoiding Plagiarism – copying word for word • Copying word for word from a source • Only copy a small amount “Today’s companies are finding it increasingly unrewarding to practice mass marketing or product-variety marketing. Mass markets are becoming ‘demassified’. They are dissolving into hundreds of micromarkets characterised by different buyers pursuing different products in different distribution channels and attending to different communication channels” (Kotler, 2000) Reference List at the end of the document Kotler, P., 2000, Marketing Management. 10th ed., New Jersey, Prentice-Hall.

  27. Avoiding Plagiarism & Demonstrating Critical Thinking The majority of literatures viewed for this research agree that the Internet in particular is reputed to be one of the reasons for social and ethical problems among school’s students. (Affonso, 1999; Davies, 2001; Piercey, 2000). On the other hand, Rahman (2002), brings up a valid point by stating that the blame for teenagers social and ethical misconducts should not be put on the technology alone, other factors like the family background and the children's upbringing should also be considered.
