Exercise 4: Citing Sources of Information As professionals, it is vital that we always provide sources for the information we present: • Citing sources is an ethical obligation to fellow authors. Nobody “just knows” stuff; we all learn from others, and we are acting unethically if we do not give fair credit to those from whom we learned. • Citing sources establishes credibility and allows readers to check our work. Savvy technical readers do not just accept statements of fact without checking those facts. To give you practice in citing sources, answer the following questions using complete sentences. You can simply type your answer in the space below each question. (I have answered the first question for you to provide an example of what I expect. Each response is formatted using the style Body Text Indent; do not use a different style.) Cite sources using an (Author Year) citation in the response and add a complete reference listing for each source in the References list at the end of the document.(For examples of correct citations and reference listings, see the English 202 Style Guide.) 1. According to Tebeaux and Dragga, how does inadvertent plagiarism differ from intentional plagiarism? Intent makes no difference. Tebeaux and Dragga (2015 p45) state that “intentions are immaterial.” Using the words of another without providing credit is still plagiarism, even if done unintentionally. Notice how the citation in the sentence above is simplified to (Year) rather than (Author Year). When the author has just been mentioned in the sentence, just cite the year of publication or access. Notice also that a page number was given because the source is a lengthy document. 2. When borrowing a substantial portion of an original source, what, according to Tebeaux and Dragga, are your ethical and legal duties? 3. What permission do you need to use material in the public domain? 4. How do Tebeaux and Dragga define false implication? 5. Who is John Millar Carroll?(Did you read the example in the exercise description?) 6. What was the mythical Nurnberg (or Nuremberg) Funnel? 7. What is a mobile phone external battery pack? 8. What is the mass of Jupiter relative to Earth? (In other words, what is the ratio of Jupiter’s mass to Earth’s mass?) 9. Based on 2015 data, which five countries (not unions) have the highest Gross Domestic Product (GDP)? 10. What is the height, in feet, of the tallest building in Boise?
