Citing Sources
Academic Integrity
at Touro College
Students accused of academic dishonesty could face lowered grades, failure of the assignment or the class, mandatory remediation, or even expulsion, if found guilty.
Short on time
Confusion over citation procedures
Poor note-taking
Fear of failure
Ignorance of consequences
Or, use a citation management system like
NoodleTools.com - FREE to Touro College students
For a full account of the procedures followed after a charge of academic dishonesty, see:

Make citing your sources simple by:
Plagiarism may be intentional (buying or copying a paper, cutting and pasting without attribution, reusing work from another class) or unintentional (inadequate or improperly formatted citations, insufficient paraphrase)
Why do students plagiarize?
"Plagiarism is defined as the unauthorized use of the writings, ideas and/or computer-generated material of others without appropriate acknowledgment and the representation of them as one's own original work."

When you use an exact phrase or sentence from a source, be sure to indicate that with quotes and attribute it with an in-text citation and entry in your bibliography

“My thoughts are stars I cannot fathom into constellations” (Green, 2012, p. 311).

Green, J. (2012). The fault in our stars. New York: Dutton Books.

If you use your own words but another author's ideas, make sure to identify it with an in-text citation and an entry in your bibliography
Make sure that the structure of the sentences, as well as the vocab is markedly different
And ensure that your version preserves the original intent

Summary condenses source information producing a shorter version in your own words.
This too needs an
in-text citation and a bibliography entry
Try an app like Evernote or online citation managers like NoodleTools, Mendeley, or Proquest Flow to help stay organized!

Incorporating Sources:
Plagiarism is not just limited to words, but includes the unattributed use of images, graphs, audio, video, computer programs, or any other type of original work
Fabrication or falsification of data, tampering, fraudulent behavior, cheating on exams, unauthorized collaboration, and copyright violation are also all breaches of academic integrity
Tips for Avoiding Plagiarism
Give yourself enough time to get your assignment done right. A little extra time now could save you a whole lot of trouble down the road.
Check out this assignment calculator for a step-by-step timeline to keep you on track:

APA, MLA, Chicago...all the different rules can be pretty overwhelming.

The good news is there are a ton of great resources available, so there's no need to try to memorize style guides
If you ever have any questions about what is or is not allowed or how to cite your sources, just ask!

Additional Resources:
Chat with a librarian online, in-person, or over the phone
Look for lots of helpful resources at www.tourolib.edu
For more in-depth information on academic research, check out the Library Research 101 tutorial on Blackboard
1. Recording the author, title and other identifying information for each source you consult
2. Clearly identifying which parts of your notes were copied word-for-word and what are your own thoughts
3. Marking the corresponding page numbers for all information in your notes
Original Text:

Wines drunk at Greek tables did not always come from Greece itself. The wine snobbery of the time extolled the merits of wines from the slopes of Mount Lebanon, from Palestine, Egypt and Magna Graecia-Greater Greece, i.e., southern Italy. The ten litres a day drunk by the famous wrestler Milo of Croton was a wine famous in Calabria, where Milo lived: this wine, Ciro, is still made.

from Maguelone Toussaint-Samat's A History of Food
Sample 1:

Wines drunk by Greeks were not always made in Greece itself. The wine snobs of that period celebrated wines from Mount Lebanon, Palestine, and Egypt. The famous wrestler Milo of Croton, who consumed ten liters of wine a day, drank wine made in Calabria outside of Greece; this wine, Ciro, is still made.
Not only does this lack a citation, but the language is too similar to the original.

Although Greeks were picky about their wine, they enjoyed wine from outside Greece. Upstanding Greeks enjoyed wine from many of Greece's local trading partners—including Palestine, Egypt and southern Italy. One story tells of the famous wrestler Milo of Croton, who consumed ten liters of foreign wine daily (Toussaint-Samat 263).

Touro College and University System is a community of scholars and learners committed to maintaining the highest standards of personal integrity in all aspects of our professional and academic lives. Students and faculty are expected to share a mutual respect for teaching, learning and the development of knowledge. Because intellectual integrity is a hallmark of scholarly and scientific inquiry as well as a core value of the Jewish tradition on which our university system was founded, students and faculty are expected to adhere to the highest standards of honesty, fairness, professional conduct of academic work and respect for all community members.

Academic honesty supports our shared intellectual culture and our ability to trust one another. Students must avoid all acts of dishonesty, including, but not limited to:

plagiarizing (presenting the work or ideas of others as your own)
fabricating (making up information, data, or research results)
tampering (unauthorized removal or alteration of College documents, software, equipment, or other academic-related materials, including other students’ work)
working with others when assignments or exams require individual work
making unauthorized copies of copyrighted material
facilitating or tolerating the dishonesty of others

Academic dishonesty lowers scholastic quality and adversely affects those who will eventually depend on the knowledge and integrity of our graduates. Failure to uphold the principles of academic integrity negatively impacts the reputation of Touro, the value of each and every degree awarded by the institution, and the future success of our graduates.
The Touro College and University System views violation of academic integrity with the utmost gravity. Such violations will lead to appropriate sanctions, from failure in coursework up to and including expulsion from the Touro College and University System. We commit ourselves to the shared vision of academic excellence that can only flourish in a climate of integrity.
