Many courses require students to complete academic research. In addition to the University’s Honor Code, guidelines exist to properly give credit to sources and legitimize students’ work, thus avoiding plagiarism.
Dr. James O’Rourke, Management Professor, has written Documentation: Acknowledging the Sources of Your Research. It is a comprehensive guide to documenting sources; i.e., borrowing words, ideas, intellectual property of others. Click here for Dr. O’Rourke’s 12-page outline of these guidelines.
