Interactive Plagiarism Education (Jan 2017)

CITI Program's Interactive Plagiarism Module

Students and professionals around the world are expected to convey their ideas and findings through published journal articles, papers, blogs, and so on. However, they are faced with the challenge of doing so while maintaining full transparency in regards to where the information was derived. Failing to provide credit to sources (whether intentionally or unintentionally) can lead to accusations of academic dishonesty and research misconduct.  Such problems can affect individuals at any career stage or in any field. As straightforward as it may seem, recognizing the parameters of plagiarism, basic principles of scholarship, and how to summarize, paraphrase, and cite works properly is often a challenging task that requires ongoing education and practice.

Meet These Needs with CITI Program's Plagiarism Module


The Plagiarism module delivers a highly interactive, educational resource that incorporates expert content and thinking, case studies reflecting real-life scenarios, critical thinking examples, additional resources, and a quiz.  It is intended to provide a basic level of training for students, faculty, and others, but can also be used for periodic retraining.  This module is in the Responsible Conduct of Research (RCR) catalog, under the basic course heading.



This module was developed by leading expert on academic dishonesty and plagiarism, Dr. Miguel Roig of St. John’s University, and peer reviewed by various other experts. Dr. Roig has over 25 years of professional experience, and frequently contributes to discussions on the topic, including his recent update to the Office of Research Integrity’s (ORI) guidance document Avoiding Plagiarism, Self-Plagiarism, and Other Questionable Writing Practices: A Guide to Ethical Writing.
