Originality and Attribution: Part Two

This section addresses itself to special problems of originality and attribution that arise in various circumstances and in specific disciplines. Contributions to this section have changed over the years, and you may very well want to add here whatever particular information about the problem you gather from your various instructors. The material we have to offer at this time falls into five main categories: the various forms of collaboration which, although they are especially relevant to work in the sciences, are found in all areas of study; the advantages and disadvantages of using secondary sources; particular concerns raised by the use of computers and electronic text; some “tips” compiled by student members of the Academic Panel and particular advice on the forms of attribution recommended by various departments.
