  • Slide 5
  • 5 Plagiarism zPlagiarism is taking another persons words (written or spoken), ideas, theories, facts (that are not considered general knowledge), statistics, art work, etc. and passing them off as your own. Simply changing the language of the information you are using also constitutes plagiarism if you do not acknowledge your source.
  • Slide 6
  • 6 Plagiarism Principles zWhen borrowing another persons word, use quotation marks and include a complete reference. zDo not paraphrase another writers words and pass them off as your own. zWhen borrowing another persons ideas (or Internet sources), acknowledge their origins.
  • Slide 7
  • 7 Citations and References zIt is very important to cite your sources correctly. The University recommends you use the Harvard System - it is simple and comprehensive. You should note that citations and references imply that you have used another authors material in your work. yReference - a general pointer to work similar to your own. yCitation - a direct reference to another authors work, used to support arguments or contentions in your own work.
  • Slide 8
  • 8 Citations and References zWhether a particular entry in a text is a simple reference or a citation cannot be deduced by the form of reference, and the distinction is only made so that one understands the difference between general references and those that support directly arguments or ideas in your work. The basic form is: yAuthors, (Year of Publication), Name of Article or book, Edition, Place: Publisher.
  • Slide 9
  • 9 Citations and References zThe following form is used to make reference to work where there are many authors. yFirst use in a text processing structure and gender (Green, 1987, Brown and Blue, 1999) yFor subsequent use we write given that processing structure is contextually defined (Green et al).
  • Slide 10
  • 10 Citations and References zIf you want to be more precise you can add the relevant page number after the date: yprocessing structure and gender (Green, 1987:234, Brown and Blue, 1999:23) zThe following form is used to make reference to work where there is a single author. y... figures be the instruments of ornament in every language (Puttenham 1589)
  • Slide 11
  • 11 Citations and References zIf you need to make a specific citation to particular elements or terms in another's work and where the authors name is effectively part of the sentence use the form: y play a role in the learning model advocated by Garlick (1989) y... Lightfoot (1991) suggests that such mission statements are strong linguistic constructs y Garlick and Lightfoot (1994) suggest that: yMission statement are strong linguistic constructs that can only be understood within a given context where a collective meaning has emerged.
  • Slide 12
  • 12 Inclusions zThis term implies that you have included in your document complete facsimiles of another document or more usually part of another document. Such inclusions will still require full referencing and care must be taken so that copyright law is not infringed. It is hard to give exact rules but typical elements are copies of a glossary, standard lists, diagrams and so on. In most cases such inclusions will be in appendices.
  • Slide 13
  • 13 Plagiarism Declaration zI confirm that the enclosed assignment including any associated software is entirely my own work except where explicitly stated otherwise. I further declare that when such other work is used it only supports my own work and its inclusion is in accordance with normal scholarly conventions.

  • 17 Harvard System Reference This is ONLY an example The integration of stand-alone and the existing companys systems become very difficult and most of them require the rewrite of the whole application to suit the new environment. [HAM2002]. The vendor tries to convince the customer to upgrade all their PCs to Office 2000. At end of day, customer takes their advice, and event they spent lots of money to buy Office 2000 from Microsoft.[KUL2001]. Cartwright (1988, p.6) suggests this is the key to business success. From above story, you should well understand why the server/client structure can minimize the software conflicting problem, and dont forget another importance fact, you should have and you can have full control of your client software when you are using server/client structure.[DAV1990]
