Assess your impact in the academic world: article citations

 

 

 

 

 

 

Reseachers are very meticulous as plagiarism is a key issue: as soon as they use an article (or a book, a congress intervention, etc.) in their research, they quote it.

This means that they put it in their article bibliography, which lists all the documents they used to write their paper.

Indeed, an article provoking interest, setting off reactions and proven useful to other researchers will be cited in articles.

Years after years, quotations have become an emblematic sign of academic success and recognition. To have your own work cited many times shows how frequently it has been used by others. It demonstrates that your work is important in the scientific world.

Numbers are even more reliable when they are consolidated in indicators. In the 1960s, the idea of calculating...

Plagiarism

What is it? How to avoid it?

 

 

When you have a work to do, whether it’s a presentation, a report or a thesis, it may seem easy to save time by writing word by word. Yet, reproducing sentences or parts of sentences found online or in a book makes the reader think you are the author of these sentences.

 

Using texts or ideas as if they were yours is a forbidden practice called “plagiarism”.

 

To copy/paste a sentence found on the internet without quoting the source is a quite extreme form of plagiarism. However, more subtle practices exist such as:

  • rewriting a sentence using synonyms without quoting the source
  • incorporating charts, graphs, images or figures without quoting the source
  • rephrasing an author’s thought with your own words without quoting the source
  • translating a text without quoting the source
