Plagiarism

Intentional Plagiarism

Deliberate use of another author’s research, ideas, or language without acknowledging the source through footnotes, quotations, or reference.
Inadvertent Plagiarism

The improper, but accidental, use of another’s ideas, words, or data without identifying the source. Inadvertent plagiarism typically occurs when the student fails to distinguish between direct quotes and general observations when doing research.
Please refer to the Purdue Website for further discussion on plagiarism.
Falsification and fabrication of material should not be an issue – but if they occur will also result in an F on the paper.

Note: All papers should include some primary literature focused on molecular mechanisms.

Two examples for citing references within in the paper.

Example
1:
The college student often finds himself or herself writing a paper the night prior to its due date. This leads to high levels of stress hormone release and low levels of the neurotransmitters DA and NE. (Mania-Farnell et al. (2009) and Neurotrans (2011) ) The student will become groggy and irritable, resulting in many errors in the assignment, these errors will generally not be corrected and will produce lower grade accomplishment. This behavior is associated with changes in prefrontal cortex activity. (Dopamin A. et al. (2012)) Changes in prefrontal cortex activity are also associated with task completion. At this time students feel a sense of relief and accomplishment.(Dopamin A. and Break Y. (2013))
Although reference names and dates can be included in the paper as above – instructor preference in this class is the use of superscripts corresponding to reference number. If several sentences in a row can be attributed to the same authors please put the reference at the end of the final sentence, not after every single sentence. Please do not use quotes – paraphrase all material.

Example 2:

The college student often finds himself or herself writing a paper the night prior to its due date. This leads to high levels of stress hormone release and low levels of the neurotransmitters DA and NE.3,4 The student will become groggy and irritable, resulting in many errors in the assignment, these errors will generally not be corrected and will produce lower grade accomplishment. This behavior is associated with changes in prefrontal cortex activity.2 Changes in prefrontal cortex activity are also associated with task completion. At this time students feel a sense of relief and accomplishment.1

Outlining a Paper

Outlining a paper before you begin writing helps ensure your paper has a clear overall structure and forward momentum.  A strong outline details each topic and subtopic in your paper, organizing these points so that they flow smoothly and provide your audience with a clear understanding of the material you are presenting.
