2009 The Publication Manual of theAmerican Psychological Association 6th ed Washington DC Author Students are strongly encouraged to turn in rough drafts of the APA Paper for critique prior to turning in the paper on the assigned due date All papers and care plans must be turned in on the due date or points will be deducted unless prior arrangements are made with the professor In order to keep the course on track other assignments and discussion postings must be posted by the due date or points will be deducted unless prior arrangements are made with the professor Plagiarism While reviewing student papers I occasionally notice that some of them have what appear to be direct quotes from sources in some cases as long as a paragraph or longer that were either not cited or not set apart by quotquotesquot indicating that it was a direct quote Putting other people s work in your paper without making it clear that it is a direct quote could be construed as plagiarism by the ISU community I want to make sure you are all aware of polices concerning plagiarism and know how to correctly paraphrase to avoid any problems ISU s plagiarism policy can be viewed at httpwww indstate J 39 J J 7004pdf Also the following link gives information on how to avoid plagiarism The plagiarism prevention owchart httpIibrarv imkfafn J J 39 39 itvnlaoia 39 39 t ndh and a tutorial from the library httpIih nish 1 quot 39stutorialsnlaoiarisml Please note that even if you paraphrase another s work you must also cite your source in text just as you would a direct quote Plagiarism also includes turning in your own work that has been previously turned in for another course s assignments Turning in another s work such as copying a web page in part or in whole or submitting another student s work as your own without giving credit is also plagiarism and can be dealt with by either an assignment of zero credit for an assignment assignment of failure for the course or recommendation of dismissal from the nursing major
