Transcript of Using the Literature Review Matrix to Draft a Paper

THINK DON'T PLAGIARIZE. Seriously. The Fine Print:
It is in your best interest to follow the rules of the academic honor code. There are serious consequences for all forms of plagiarism. See http://www.ecu.edu/cs-hhp/Academic_integrity.cfm. If you use material from sources in your writing for this course (or any other graduate course at ECU), you must cite the source appropriately. If the material is copied verbatim, you must use quotation marks and cite the author’s name and a complete citation. Using someone else’s work without attribution violates the ECU academic honor
code. Violation of this code will be reported to the Office of Student Rights and Responsibilities (OSRR) may result in receiving an F, not only for the assignment, but also for the course. 1. 2. 3. Refer to the matrix as you work. Don't cry if you have to go back to the literature to find more/different articles. It is part of the process! Notice how the first example uses parenthetical citations ...... and the other incorporates the authors' names right into the text. Both are fine and you might try to vary your writing style in this way. In a third example, you can explain what researchers have found. Smith (2007) found that primary students were able to comprehend narrative text after practice with graphic supports using comic books. Be careful when choosing verbs. Sometimes you'll want to explain research results to your reader and other times you'll want to explain what researchers recommend. These are two different things, so think about what you are trying to say and be sure to choose the most appropriate words.
