Plagiarism always has concerned instructors and students alike, especially as part of a more extensive discussion involving academic integrity. Much of the concern has to do with what it is, how people do not mean to commit it, and more importantly, informing themselves about the topic. The Getting Started with Academic Writing guide addresses those issues, and others, depending on the given need:
- Overviews of plagiarism types with infographics for quick reference. Many sections feature some curated YouTube videos explaining the ‘what’ and the ‘why’ of plagiarism and the skills needed to counter it.
- Some new sections on topics such as unauthorized group work and learning about paraphrasing/direct quotation skills needed during the writing process.
- Direct Links to our citation guide and our Writing Centre, saving time searching the guide page.
This guide also serves as a companion to guides such as the Communication Guide, APA 7th ed Highlights, RefWorks, and a newly redesigned Writing Centre page from the Academic Success Centre. Library Services continues to support student success with more exciting ventures and as always, reach out to the ‘Ask Us’ chat bubble if you need assistance.
