Attribution, Linking and Plagiarism Prevention Tips for Online Journalists


Via Robin Good
Rob Schneider's insight:

Sharing because it's so important. I realized how important it was after forgetting to attribute a source to a photo. Plagiarism just plain sucks on all levels, but overlooking source attribution is bad manners at best.

Des conseils pour éviter le plagiat destinés aus journalistes comme à tous ceux qui écrivent régulièrement en ligne. Un rappel de bonnes pratiques.

Carlos Bisbal's curator insight, October 8, 2013 9:08 AM

Presentación en Slide publicada hace unos días por Steve Buttry que enumera todas las situaciones en las que es posible correr el riesgo de ser acusado de plagio.

La presentación es un resumen de consejos para periodistas online que tienen que lidiar a diario con la adición de enlaces de referencia, la concesión de créditos y la atribución de autoría y evitar ser acusados de plagio.

Un buen consejo que no debe tomarse a la ligera

"The Blurry Line Between Plagiarism and Credit Attribution"

Rob Schneider's insight:

I like to name the author and title whenever possible, but sometimes, yes, I think just a link is good enough. It depends on how significant the content is to what you're writing.

@Ron - One of the things I like about content curation at Scoop.it is that the images are clickable to take you to the content. So are the headlines and the link is in small print too, listed as the source. So, there are three ways to get back to the source of the content. I try to do the same on my own sites when I curate content or reference someone else. I hadn't really thought about the link at the end of the post being more or less visible. But, I think you are right. It should stand out more than it often does.

maybe rather than placing the link at the bottom, instead placing it on the top. like Scoop.it, placing it straight next to the title.

interesting to ponder... just seems that copyright will remain problematic if not more in the future.
