This new Biomedical Library exhibit provides tips for avoiding plagiarism and a handy decision tree to help authors to decide when to cite in their scientific papers. It will be on display in the library breezeway until May 14, 2009. Stop by and pick up a handout to use with your students while supplies last.
A more detailed guide, “Guidelines for Avoiding Plagiarism, Self-Plagiarism, and Questionable Writing Practices: A Guide to Ethical Writing,” written by Miguel Roig, Ph.D. of St. John’s University, is available online from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Office of Research Integrity. A PDF copy is also available.
