Academic Writing: Plagiarism and Referencing.

In this video, Richard Galletly (Academic English lecturer at Aston University) presents a guide to avoiding plagiarism in your writing, and introduces some ideas to help with your referencing. This guide is intended for students at UK universities in undergraduate and postgraduate courses. The ideas found here are a synthesis of the current research into plagiarism and how to avoid it, including ideas from East (2009), Ellery (2008) and Hyland (2010). The concept of using summarising and parpaphrasing to avoid accidental plagiarism is questioned here, and the use of effective reflection, discussion, critical evaluation and commentary on sources is encouraged. This video is available as part of a collection of shared open educational resources for the FAVOR project and available in languagebox.ac.uk/profile/1239 .

Plagiarism and Referencing lecture and workshop.

designed for an hour's class on plagiarism, this lecture introduces the concepts of plagiarism and Harvard/ APA referencing styles, the importance of correct referencing and most importantly: the use of an authentic authorial voice. This concept is introduced by giving three extracts from journals on fair trade, and a slide on the fair trade of chocolate, using the supplier Askinosie as an example. Students then discuss, critically evaluate, reflect and debate the concept of Fair Trade. When I tried this out on a group of first year undergraduates they performed very well at this task, and I was able to explain to them how they might use the extracts to inform and inspire discussion in their essays, and to avoid the common mistakes of summarising and paraphrasing too closely to the originals, so that they avoid patchworking in their essays.
