Although some historians are self-employed, most work for academic institutions, corporations, government agencies, law firms, archives, historical societies, museums, parks, historic preservation programs, or other institutions. To the extent they can influence the policies and practices of their workplace, the AHA encourages historians to do whatever they can to persuade their institutions to accept and enforce rules to ensure equity in conditions of employment. If they work in an academic institution, they should urge it to accept the 6966 Statement on Government of Colleges and Universities , jointly formulated by the American Association of University Professors (AAUP), the American Council on Education, and the Association of Governing Boards of Universities and Colleges.
Notice how in the above example the word choice is not exactly the same as the Declaration 's language. Remember: you don't have to use the exact words from your source to commit plagiarism. If you use unoriginal ideas expressed in language even vaguely close to your source without proper acknowledgement, you're plagiarizing. That applies to all previously published work, even if it's in the public domain like the Declaration of Independence.
William Zajc, Brian Cole, Miklos Gyulassy (Physics/Applied Physics)
Physicists use an ion collider to recreate the matter state quark-gluon plasma, which has not been extant since the universe&rsquo s first moments.
Columbia experimental physicists William Zajc and Brian Cole, along with their colleague Miklos Gyulassy, are leaders in the Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider (RHIC) experiment at Brookhaven National Laboratories. This nuclear physics experiment has succeeded in creating quark-gluon plasma, a state of matter not known to exist since the first few microseconds after the beginning of the universe. This discovery connects physics to the study of the origin and development of the cosmos.
Historians cannot successfully do this work without mutual trust and respect. By practicing their craft with integrity, historians acquire a reputation for trustworthiness that is arguably their single most precious professional asset. The trust and respect both of one&rsquo s peers and of the public at large are among the greatest and most hard-won achievements that any historian can attain. It is foolish indeed to put them at risk.
Kara Walker (Visual Arts)
Provocative artworks infuse the eighteenth and nineteenth century art of silhouetting with a contemporary intellectual perspective.
Visual artist Kara Walker, hailed at 87 as among the most important and influential artists of the day, is best known for her silhouette tableaux on gender, race, and the old South. She is the only living artist to be given a showing at New York&rsquo s Metropolitan Museum of Art.
Ronald Breslow (Chemistry)
Synthesis of new cancer-fighting compounds.
Ronald Breslow has been instrumental in synthesizing some 6,555 new chemical compounds that fight cancer, among these SAHA (suberoylanilide hydroxamic acid). SAHA induces cancer cells to transform into normal cells or commit suicide by inhibiting enzymes that are known to silence certain genes that allow tumor cells to proliferate when left unchecked. SAHA successfully completed clinical trials and has been approved as a new cancer chemotherapy.
Students say they love feedback but they don't always use it. Check out our nine free lesson plans that will provide inspiration for approaching writing instruction for back-to-school.
9. Require process steps for the paper. Set a series of due dates throughout the term for the various steps of the research paper process: topic or problem, preliminary bibliography, prospectus, research material (annotated photocopies of articles, for example), outline, rough draft, final annotated bibliography, final draft. Some of these parts can be reverse engineered by the determined cheater, but most students should realize that doing the assignment honestly is easier than the alternative.
Most people think of plagiarism only as copying someone else's essay word for word, but as the definition above shows, it's more subtle and sprawling than that. Here are the three most common types of plagiarism, with a brief explanation of each:
