Understanding academic integrity and plagiarism
Features: 3:18 min, english subtitles, transcript available
Review: In this learning video the transition officer of the University of Southampton is explaining to new students why referencing is a basic working technique and taken so seriously at universities. The video illuminates the concept of academic integrity where acknowledging the knowledge of others is an important basic principle. By showing the reader where you got your information, you provide evidence that supports your argumentation and you add credibility to your own piece of work. Referencing makes your work reproducible and avoids plagiarism.
The setting is just a person lecturing, but a transcript of the whole video can be found in the section bellow. That makes it easier for non-native speakers.
