Academic Integrity
design by Dóri Sirály for Prezi
What is Academic Integrity?
When working on a master's degree at the U.S. Army War College in 2007, Senator John Walsh heavily plagiarized from other sources in his final paper (Martin "How Senator John Walsh...").
Why is it Important to us?
Do
your own work
Cite
information in papers (facts & summaries of what someone else wrote)
Do not cheat
on tests
Do not turn in work that
you did not do
yourself
Do not re-use
papers
What does this mean at Drexel?
1. In her lab report, Chris describes the methods a famous chemist used to come to a specific conclusion, but she can't remember where she read it so doesn't cite it. Is this plagiarism?

2. Matt is writing a paper for his English class and wants to quote something his professor said in class. He has permission to quote his professor. Does he need to add a citation in the text and at the end of his paper for this quote?
*MLA Style
Aulet theorizes that innovation "is not a sum of invention and commercialization, but a product" (8). Without an idea of how to create and market a new idea it is just inventive and cannot be commercial. To be innovative a company must have a grasp of both worlds and be able to create new ideas and sell them to the right people.
When starting a business that you want to be innovative there must be an idea that is commercial and inventive (Aulet 8). Both parts of this formula are important when starting a new company or business. A new company that can market and sell a product that is not new or novel is just another business, it is not innovative.

Schools
and Education?
Look at Sen. Walsh's paper
Here
Yes!
Sen. Walsh's master's degree was
revoked
in October 2014, after a routine review by a board of faculty from the U.S. Army War College. Sen. Walsh withdrew from the race for reelection to the Senate in August 2014 (Martin "Plagiarism Costs Degree...").
What about Ghostwriting?
Ghostwriting is when someone (often a public figure) pays a writer to "assist" them with writing a book. Often the writer is credited with the author as in
Lean In
by Sheryl Sandberg with Nell Scovell.
Is Ghostwriting academic work ok?
Why or Why not?
It's not ok.
Ghostwriters are being
paid
and/or
acknowledged
Academic work is for a
grade
or
degree
It is expected that at Drexel you turn in
your own work
The
grade
or
degree
is given to you, not to your Ghostwriter
It's
dishonest
- paying for a grade or degree means you didn't put the time and effort into earning it.
Drexel's "Code of Student Conduct" calls this fabrication: "Submitting as your own written work, printing, sculpture, etc. prepared totally or in part by another" (Drexel University).
It all comes down to the expectation that
YOU
are doing your own work and that is why you're at Drexel!
"the act of using another person's words or ideas without giving credit to that person" (Merriam Webster, "Plagiarism")
Plagiarism:
You need to cite when you
QUOTE
or
SUMMARIZE
someone else.
What is it?
Common Knowledge?
What about things that most people know, does that need to be cited?
For example, Philadelphia is in the state of Pennsylvania or George Washington was the first president of the United States of America.
It depends...
Consider your audience, is it a fact that your audience is familiar with?
For example, in your lab report for Chemistry you may assume that those people reading your lab report will know that Robert Boyle created Boyle's law, which deals with the relationship between the pressure and the volume of gases. But when writing about this same law for your English 103 class, those reading your paper will likely not be familiar with this so you will want to cite a source for this fact. That gives context that those reading the paper can use.
But remember, when in doubt,
CITE it!
Why Cite?
- Add credibility
- More information
- Responsibility
In Summary...
Do your
own work
Cite
information in papers (facts & summaries of what someone else wrote)
Do not cheat
on tests
Do not turn in work that you did not do yourself
Do not re-use
papers
