Avoiding Plagiarism 避免抄襲: What comprises plagiarism 怎樣構成抄襲

What comprises plagiarism 怎樣構成抄襲

Here are some indisputable plagiarism examples:

 Buying a paper written by someone else and submitting it as your own;      

 Copying all or part of someone else's work, claiming that it is your own work;

 Paying others to write all or part of the paper for you;

 Claiming a group assignment as your own work, though it's a work jointly done with your teammates.

 

However, most of the time people fall into the risk of plagiarism unintentionally because of lack of knowledge about plagiarism. Here are some examples:

 Using materials from an online resource, no matter it's a website or a social media account, without giving the Internet address of it;

 Direct quoting words or ideas from books or articles without putting the quotation in quotation marks and without providing the source;

 Paraphrasing or rewriting words or ideas from books or articles without providing the source.

             

 

以下是一些無可爭辯的抄襲例子:

 購買其他人所寫的文章,當作自己所寫;

 全部或局部抄錄另一同學的作業,而聲稱是你自己所做的作業;

 付錢給別人為你撰寫全部或局部的作業;

 提交一份與同學合作完成的小組報告,郤聲稱報告是你自己一個人完成。

 

可是,更多時候,同學並非蓄意抄襲,只是沒有意識到有關規則是非常嚴格的。舉例說:

 從網上資源(如:網頁、社交媒體帳號等) 摘錄並引用資料,但沒有說明網址;

 直接引述書本或期刊文章的內容而沒有使用引號標註引述內容及沒有註明出處;

 將書本或期刊文章中的內容或論點,以自己的文字改寫,而沒有說明出處。

 

         

Common Knowledge 常識

Common knowledge is something that is known by most people (Definition from Oxford Dictionary). There's no need to cite these information.

For examples: "The sun rises in the east", "Doing exercise is good for health".

However, if in doubt, CITE.


記述常識不用註明出處,例如:「太陽從東面升起」、「多做運動有助健康」。

可是,如有懷疑,請列明出處。
