and the Estate of Marvin Gaye (2014). Hastings Communications and Entertainment Law Journal, Vol. 36, No. 2, 2014 (pp. 217-242). In Context Although not just college students plagiarize Expectations depend on how the information is delivered Speech Newspaper Term Paper

Expectation for accuracy and attribution meter If Youre Accused 1. Your instructor informs you verbally or in writing that he/she suspects you of plagiarizing 2. Your instructor provides you with an opportunity to explain orally or in writing why you believe you did not plagiarize 3. If your instructor still believes you plagiarized he/she may Refuse the work submitted for credit

Student gets an F or zero on the assignment impose sanctions: Student fails the class Request that stiffer sanctions be applied Plagiarism School If Youre Sanctioned The Instructor must report the act of plagiarism and the sanction applied to the Office of Student Conduct The Office of Student Conduct will inform you that you have the right to appeal the sanction by writing to that Office

within 15 days of getting their notification of the sanction If you have been successfully sanctioned previously or the instructor or dean request disciplinary sanctions, you must appeal before the Academic Hearing Panel If You Appeal A hearing will be scheduled with the Academic Hearing Panel where the instructor must prove you plagiarized You and the instructor can call witnesses

and cross exam each other (neither side can be represented by legal counsel) The AHP makes a decision in the matter and provides it to you in writing within 7 calendar days of the hearing Avoiding Plagiarism Always do your own work Be organized (failure to properly attribute someones work by mistake is still plagiarism) When using facts or figures always cite a source (only widely known or accepted facts or common knowledge can be presented without citation

Double-dipping (using a substantial portion of a piece of work for two or more classes without notifying the instructor) is a form of cheating similar to plagiarism If in doubt, ask for help from your instructor (the Library or the Writing Center) SafeAssign Check (have the library submit your paper before handing it in to see if there are problems) Case Studies 1. George Bono's paper on AIDS 2. Rosie Pinetar's essay on The Natural 3. Stuart Lavaman's term paper in Geology 4. Gilbert Trout's book report on Slaughterhouse-Five
