Ignorance & sloppiness are not legitimate excuses.
Cite sources of your ideas when you use the exact words (include quotation marks and page number) and when you paraphrase.
Example of a Correctly Cited Direct Quote
“Informed by developments in case law, the police use various methods of interrogation — including the presentation of false evidence (e.g., fake polygraph, fingerprints, or other forensic test results; staged eyewitness identifications), appeals to God and religion, feigned friendship, and the use of prison informants” (Kassin & Kiechel, 1996, p. 125).
Example of Plagiarism
(No Citation Accompanying Paraphrased Material)
Research investigations of deceptive interrogation methods to extract confessions are important because police use false evidence (e.g., fake test results) and false witnesses when interrogating suspects. Interrogators also pressure suspects by pretending to be their friends.
