  • Review Walden University’s policy on plagiarism on the
    university’s website. Consider the definition of plagiarism and specific
    actions characterized as plagiarism.
  • Review the course media program “Walden University: Introduction
    to Scholarly Writing: Plagiarism and Academic Integrity.” Think about
    how you might follow academic integrity guidelines to avoid plagiarism.
  • Review Chapters 1 and 6 of the course text, Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association, and review the Plagiarism 101 website, focusing on how to avoid plagiarism.
  • Read the original passage below.
  • Doctors, whose first allegiance is supposed to be to their
    patients, have traditionally stood between drug company researchers and
    trusting consumers. Yet unless there is evidence of misconduct (the
    deliberate misrepresentation of something as fact by someone who knows
    it is not), it is very difficult to discover and virtually impossible to
    prove that a piece of biomedical research has been tainted by conflict
    of interest. No study is perfect, and problems arise in the labs of even
    the most conscientious and honest researchers. Although biomedical
    research incorporates rigorous scientific rules and is often critically
    scrutinized by peers, the information can nevertheless be warped—by
    ending a study because the results are disappointing; changing rules
    mid-study; not trying to publish negative results; publicizing
    preliminary results even with final and less positive results in hand;
    skimming over or even not acknowledging drawbacks; and, especially,
    casting the results in the best light or, as scientists say, buffing
    them (Crossen, 1994, pp. 166–167).

  • Next, read the following passage, which was written by a student
    who wants to use this source in a paper and is trying not to plagiarize.
    Assess the student’s work for plagiarism:
  • “Consumers must trust that the research that has gone into the
    manufacture of new drugs is safe. But it is hard to know if a conflict
    of interest between doctors, researchers, and the drug company
    stockholders has tainted the results. Biomedical researchers incorporate
    strict rules of science into their work, which is examined by peers.
    Yet the resulting information can be warped for five reasons: ending a
    study too soon, not publishing negative results, publishing results too
    early, skimming over or ignoring drawbacks, and ‘buffing’ the results by
    showing them in the best light” (Crossen, 1994, p. 167).

Submit a 1- to 2-page paper that includes the following:

  • An explanation of how to recognize plagiarism
  • An explanation, including a justification of your
    explanation, of the extent to which the student plagiarized the original
    source (first passage) in the above (second) passage
  • Two sentences from the passage you think are clear
    examples of plagiarism and an example of how to rephrase them in your
    own words or an example of a direct quote, which uses source material
    word for word, with proper use of quotation marks and a standard APA
  • A specific explanation of how to avoid plagiarism in your own writing
