How to Recognize Plagiarism: Welcome: School of Education, Indiana University Bloomington

In our experience with writers over the years, we have observed two prevalent kinds of plagiarism: word-for-word and paraphrasing.

You need to be able to identify these kinds of plagiarism in order to avoid them. You also need to be able to discern when plagiarism does not occur.

This is the main focus of this tutorial. When provided with original source material and a sample of student writing, you should be able to correctly identify whether the student version is word-for-word plagiarism, paraphrasing plagiarism, or not plagiarism.

Content Volatility of Scientific Topics in Wikipedia: A Cautionary Tale

Content Volatility of Scientific Topics in Wikipedia: A Cautionary Tale | Referencing and avoiding plagiarism (KES, Stratford upon Avon) | Scoop.it
Wikipedia has quickly become one of the most frequently accessed encyclopedic references, despite the ease with which content can be changed and the potential for ‘edit wars’ surrounding controversial topics. Little is known about how this potential for controversy affects the accuracy and stability of information on scientific topics, especially those with associated political controversy. Here we present an analysis of the Wikipedia edit histories for seven scientific articles and show that topics we consider politically but not scientifically “controversial” (such as evolution and global warming) experience more frequent edits with more words changed per day than pages we consider “noncontroversial” (such as the standard model in physics or heliocentrism). For example, over the period we analyzed, the global warming page was edited on average (geometric mean ±SD) 1.9±2.7 times resulting in 110.9±10.3 words changed per day, while the standard model in physics was only edited 0.2±1.4 times resulting in 9.4±5.0 words changed per day. The high rate of change observed in these pages makes it difficult for experts to monitor accuracy and contribute time-consuming corrections, to the possible detriment of scientific accuracy. As our society turns to Wikipedia as a primary source of scientific information, it is vital we read it critically and with the understanding that the content is dynamic and vulnerable to vandalism and other shenanigans.
Lesley Watts's insight:

Research that stresses caution when using Wikipedia.

If it does not work why pay for it? Lecturers do not have time so maybe it is better than nothing? #justsaying
