Computer Science and Data Science Capstone at NYU Shanghai
A research and resource guide for computer science and data science capstone students at NYU Shanghai
Academic Integrity is a core value at NYU Shanghai, which is why it is important to avoid plagiarizing by always citing your sources. The NYU Shanghai bulletin describes plagiarism as:
presenting others' work without adequate acknowledgement of its source, as though it were one’s own. Plagiarism is a form of fraud. We all stand on the shoulders of others, and we must give credit to the creators of the works that we incorporate into products that we call our own. Some examples of plagiarism:
a sequence of words incorporated without quotation marks
an unacknowledged passage paraphrased from another's work
the use of ideas, sound recordings, computer data or images created by others as though it were one’s own
Properly citing your sources not only protects you, but shows your respect for the scholars whose thoughts and research your are using.
Citation tools help you properly format your bibliographies; some of them, such as Zotero and Refworks even help you store your citations as well as PDFs of articles and book chapters, for easy access in the future.
