Lecture 2: Source quality & (anti-)plagiarism
Principles of ethical referencing
Always mention your source
If you make use of other people´s thoughts and ideas it is crucial that you
always acknowledge this through a reference.
If you leave out references to the sources used this can be viewed as
plagiarism
There are a number of ways to mention a source:

Principles of ethical referencing
Always mention your source contd.
Direct quote:
”Culture is a web of flows, multiplying, converging and crossing”
(Fornäs, 1995, p. 1)
Paraphrase:
Culture is a complex and dynamic concept (Fornäs, 1995, p. 1)
Referential:
According to Johan Fornäs culture is not a static but a very
dynamic reality (1995, p. 1)
23
Lecture 2: Source quality & (anti-)plagiarism
Principles of ethical referencing
Mention all sources, no matter the type
Not only printed sources with an obvious originator need referencing.
Whether you find inspiration for your assignment in a traditional
monograph, on a company website, in conversations with informants etc.
these sources always need mentioning
24
Lecture 2: Source quality & (anti-)plagiarism
Principles of ethical referencing
Be loyal to your sources
Citations always need to be identical to what is actually being cited. It is
not okay to ”retouch” ”bad” wordings or to correct mis-spellings in the
original document.
There are, however, various ways of getting around this, the most
common being:
- [sic]
- Square brackets […]
25
Lecture 2: Source quality & (anti-)plagiarism
Principles of ethical referencing
Be loyal to your sources contd.
[sic] following immediately after a word signals that an archaic or incorrect
spelling orginates in the source document.
ex. The harwest [sic] was ruined
If you wish to only quote parts of a sentence you can use […] to indicate
the bits left out.
ex: ”[…] a voice […] told him that a ship was ready to carry him to freedom” (Lydon 1998).

Principles of ethical referencing
Ensure alignment between in-text references and
bibliography
Any in-text citation must be accompanied by an entry in the bibliography.
However, only one entry is needed per source, no matter how many times
it is mentioned.
