When to Cite?
Options for Citing:
Plagiarism is Academic Misconduct. Upon enrollment at the School of Nursing, students are required to sign the Student Academic Honor Code Pledge form. From the Student Handbook:
"Plagiarism/Self Plagiarism. This is an act of taking someone else’s work or ideas and passing them off as one’s own. This can include published or unpublished work without proper acknowledgement. Self-plagiarism is the use of one’s own previous work in another context without citing that it was used previously."
Students who appear to have violated the code of conduct must appear before the Honor Council, which is responsible for determining the validity of any allegation of academic or professional misconduct.
Researching ethically is also researching efficiently.
See these examples of how to paraphrase at the University of Cambridge's guide on plagiarism.
The Emory School of Nursing uses APA (American Psychological Association) style. The APA citation style is primarily used by disciplines in the business, social sciences, health, and education fields.
