Description

The pressures of study, diversity of source materials, past assumptions relating to good writing practice, ambiguous writing guidance on best practice and students' insecurity about their reasoning ability, can lead to plagiarism. With the use of source checking software, there is an increased chance that plagiarised work will be identified and investigated, and penalties given. In extreme cases, plagiarised work may be reported to the Nursing and Midwifery Council and professional as well as academic penalties may apply. This learning module provides information on how students can avoid plagiarism when preparing their coursework for submission.

Objectives

This module provides information on how nursing students can avoid plagiarism when preparing their coursework for submission. It examines what constitutes plagiarism, why plagiarism might arise and what can be done to ensure that work submitted meets the required writing standards. The module is aimed at nursing students and does not discuss preparation of work for publication, where checks for plagiarism also occur. The module does not discuss self-plagiarism, where the student re-uses his or her own work. University regulations relating to self-plagiarism vary widely. Therefore, students are encouraged to enquire how their place of study defines and responds to plagiarism.

On completion of this course you will gain an understanding of:
Identify circumstances that may increase the risk of students submitting work that has been plagiarised.
Recognise ways of searching for and using information that minimise the risk of plagiarism.
Explain why using secondary source material may increase the risk of plagiarism.
Detail how a direct quotation should be presented in text and what is necessary if source material is to be adequately paraphrased.
Describe what happens in a typical plagiarism investigation.
