Nursing Research: Plariarism

Information about Plagiariam

What is it?

  • It's not just taking words, it's taking ideas and using them as your own without giving credit
  • It is usually not deliberate – it is generally a result of poor note taking or lack of organization
  • If you give credit by way of a citation, then you’re usually ok.
  • If you are unsure whether to give credit or not, cite the source just to be safe

What can happen if I do plagiarize?

  • A lot will depend upon whether it's intentional or unintentional
  • You may initially receive a warning
  • You could also receive a failing mark on the paper or fail the class altogether
  • It could be reported and added to your academic file
  • In some extreme circumstances it can be grounds for expulsion
  • Do you know your Professor's policies on plagiarism?
