Turnitin has released a report that details the "plagiarism spectrum" and also provides examples of each. This post links to an infographic that provides the 10 types of "unoriginal work" (with examples), the frequency of each type of work, how problamatic each is, and then lists them from the highest to the lowest based in the scores (frequency and problematic) as well as including the original work and the work submitted. 

Students often struggle with understanding what plagiarism is. This infographic provides a great tool to use with your students to help them identify how easy it is to plagiarize. We then need to teach them what they need to do!

Good for coaching learners on what not to do.

Plagiarism is often difficult for students to understand beyond the 'Cloning' stage.  This infographic may help demonstrate the slippery slope.

Plagiarism and the link: How the web makes attribution easier -- and more complicated

Plagiarism and the link: How the web makes attribution easier -- and more complicated | K12, HE, NGOs, Non-Profits: INFORMATION LITERACY | Scoop.it
The controversy over writer Nate Thayer’s failure to credit his sources, which some alleged amounted to plagiarism, is just part of an ongoing debate over how we use — and give credit for — information in a digital age.

 

The problem is that while adding hyperlinks is a great way of avoiding a charge of plagiarism — something that might have helped Fox News opinion writer Juan Williams and other alleged plagiarists — there is no accepted protocol for how or where to add those links, or how much content someone can cut and paste into their story or blog post without crossing the line from borrowing into plagiarism or copyright infringement.

As a hyperlink embedder, this is a timely post for introspection! Everyone should stop, read, and contemplate whether they are remaining true to the source. I'd like to think I have been, but it's time to reflect and inspect!

As a hyperlink embedder, I would like to think I have remained true to the source author, but this post is a great timely piece to insure we contemplate, and reflect on how we are attributing the work of others.  In our hurried-fast-pace-production world, we need to slow down and insure that we are practicing what we preach.

This is also an important topic for librarians to address. We teach our students to cite sources and give attribution to the creators of materials they use in their projects. Is a link enough? And yes, just how much can you quote without losing your own voice?
