Don’t: a) lift passages from other sources without attribution and link…” This is what read the first slide of a presentation deck published a few days back by Steve Buttry which goes on to list all of the situations where it’s possible to run the risk of being accused of plagiarism,. The presentation is an outline of tips for online journalists who have to deal daily with adding link references, providing credit and attribution and avoiding being accused of plagiarism. Good advice not to be taken lightly. Useful. 8/10 Original slide deck: http://www.slideshare.net/stevebuttry/attribution-workshop
