Academic Integrity

Must be in APA format…. title page and header are not required….. cite your resources.

DQ 1

One of the aspects of scholarly work is giving attribution to ideas and information sources that you use—giving credit where it is due. Failure to do so diminishes your credibility and violates the principles of academic integrity. Plagiarism is the presentation of work done by others as your own work without giving credit. This can occur deliberately or inadvertently, but in either case, it is a violation of academic integrity.

To prepare for this discussion:

Review The Plagiarism Spectrum found in the Learning Resources

The two most common violations (Clone and CTRL-C) may be most familiar to you. Reflect on the 8 less common violations, identify one that you may have committed (or you could imagine committing due to carelessness) and share steps you can take to avoid it.

Write a 3 paragraph explanation of how you might avoid committing one of the types of plagiarism described

DQ 2

Scholarly writing has traditions and expectations. It is different from journalism or letter writing because you are providing insights on the issues that are grounded in research, critical reading, and analysis rather than presenting an opinion or a personal belief. Scholarly writers strive for academic integrity and work to keep personal bias and beliefs out of their writing. Review your Learning Resources and view the media provided on scholarly writing.

For this Discussion, research and select one non-peer-reviewed article related to health that you believe presents bias.


Write a brief summary of the article you selected. Then, explain why you think it presents bias. Provide an example of how the bias can be reduced by using scholarly voice. Expand on your insights using the Learning Resources.
