  • 3 UNIT 4 ASSIGNMENT REMINDER Due Tuesday, May 15 Proposal for who you would like to interview and interview questions. A template can be found in Unit 4 that already has the structure necessary to submit the proposal. Simply fill in the information as needed. Any Questions?
  • 4 REMINDER ABOUT UNITS 5 AND 6 Next week (Unit 5) is a reading week. Use this time to catch up on assignments you haven’t turned in and your course readings. There will be no Unit 6 seminar because it falls over the university’s Memorial Day holiday. All other assignments will still be due on the Tuesday of the unit.
  • 5 PLAGIARISM AND ACADEMIC INTEGRITY Plagiarism – Intentional or unintentional academic dishonesty that falsely represents your work as a student. In short, it is theft of someone else’s ideas or work. Accidental plagiarism is still plagiarism and carries the same consequences. Source: Kaplan Plagiarism Policy
  • 6 PLAGIARISM AND ACADEMIC INTEGRITY Examples of dishonesty or unethical and unprofessional behavior: Using another person’s words, ideas, or results without giving proper credit to that person; giving the impression that it is the student’s own work. Any form of cheating on examinations. Altering academic or clinical records. Falsifying information for any assignments. Submitting an assignment(s) that was partially or wholly completed by another student. Copying work or written text from a student, the Internet, or any document without giving due credit to the source of the information. Submitting an assignment(s) for more than one class without enhancing and refining the assignment, and without first receiving instructor permission. Source : Kaplan Plagiarism Policy
  • 7 PLAGIARISM AND ACADEMIC INTEGRITY Continued: In cases where previous assignments are allowed to be submitted for another class, it is the responsibility of the student to enhance the assignment with additional research and to also submit the original assignment for comparison purposes. Assisting another student with reasonable knowledge that the other student intends to commit any act of academic dishonesty. This offence would include, but not be limited to, providing an assignment to another student to submit as his or her own work or allowing another student to copy answers to any test, examination, or assignment. Source: Kaplan Plagiarism Policy
  • 8 PLAGIARISM AND ACADEMIC INTEGRITY From the Kaplan University Catalog: Charges of academic dishonesty brought against a student shall be made in writing by the instructor to the Provost's Office. The Provost's Office maintains a database of plagiarism offenses and a file of all plagiarism charges. When an offense has been committed, the Provost's Office sends the student a copy of the plagiarism policy and a letter of the action taken, and informs the Academic Department Chair, the Academic Advisor, and the course instructor of any plagiarism charges.
  • 9 PLAGIARISM AND ACADEMIC INTEGRITY Academic dishonesty is a serious offense and may result in the following sanctions: 1st offense: Failure of the assignment in which the action occurred. 2nd offense: Failure of the class in which the action occurred. 3rd offense: Expulsion or permanent dismissal from the University. Source: Kaplan Plagiarism Policy
  • 10 PROPER CITATIONS Ideas and concepts introduced in the text need to be attributed to their source. Failure to do so is plagiarism. Citations are the means of properly giving credit where it is due. Ideas you present in your writing that are not yours must be properly cited. Please refer to the sample paper and the Kaplan writing resource center for examples and guidance. Kaplan uses the APA style of references.
  • 11 PROPER CITATIONS CONTINUED Example: Informal convergence is the response of individuals or groups of individuals to a disaster area without being requested (Fritz and Mathewson, 1957). Example: However, Quarantelli (1988) argues that this phenomenon is inevitable in large scale disasters.
  • 12 PROPER CITATIONS CONTINUED Example: In addition, lack of communication from incident managers leads outside organizations to assume that “…too much help is better than too little” (Auf der Heide, 2006 p, 37). Direct quotation from sources needs to be done with quotation marks and citation reference with page number. Your writing is more meaningful when you paraphrase or condense the ideas from your research (giving proper citations of course). This shows the reader that you understand the points being made and are able to synthesize them.
  • 13 BIBLIOGRAPHY / WORK CITED Alphabetical list (by author’s last name) of the references analyzed and cited in your paper. Example: Auf der Heide, E (2006). The Importance of Evidence-Based Disaster Planning. Annals of Emergency Medicine. Vol. 47 No. 1. Fire Department of New York (FDNY) (2002). McKinsey Report: Increasing FDNY’s Preparedness. New York, NY. Florida Fire Chiefs’ Association (FFCA) (2010). Statewide Emergency Response Plan. Fritz, CE and Mathewson, JH (1957). Convergence Behavior in Disasters: A Problem in Social Control. Disaster Study #9 Publication #476. Committee on Disaster Studies, National Academy of Sciences, National Research Council.
  • 14 ACADEMIC RESEARCH AND REFERENCES Your writing should be based on the research you have performed, not the other way around. References need to be: -Grounded in the research (Peer Reviewed) (Google Scholar) -Well referenced themselves -Fact not opinion -Objective Sources such as: newspapers, blogs, government websites, magazines, etc. can be used rarely when there is a compelling reason to do so, but must not be the majority of your sources. The number and type of sources tells the reader how well you have researched the topic. As an instructor, a lack of sources sends up a red flag that the topic has not been properly researched.
  • 15 RESEARCH TIPS The more narrow your focus, the easier it will be to find quality references. Your references are a good source of references. Specific search engines such as “Google Scholar” pick through all the information on the web to locate good quality sources that are academically rigorous. Carefully think about how your search terms influence your results. Kaplan’s Library and Writing Center are great sources of information. Try using other universities’ libraries to find information as well.
