Overview

Since its publication in 2004, Doing Honest Work in College has become an integral part of academic integrity and first-year experience programs across the country. This helpful guide explains the principles of academic integrity in a clear, straightforward way and shows students how to apply them in all academic situations—from paper writing and independent research to study groups and lab work. Teachers can use this book to open a discussion with their students about these difficult issues. Students will find a trusted resource for citation help whether they are studying comparative literature or computer science. Every major reference style is represented. Most important of all, many universities that adopt this book report a reduction in cheating and plagiarism on campus.
            For this second edition, Charles Lipson has updated hundreds of examples and included many new media sources. There is now a full chapter on how to take good notes and use them properly in papers and assignments. The extensive list of citation styles incorporates guidelines from the American Anthropological Association. The result is the definitive resource on academic integrity that students can use every day.
             “Georgetown’s entering class will discover that we actually have given them what we expect will be a very useful book, Doing Honest Work in College. It will be one of the first things students see on their residence hall desks when they move in, and we hope they will realize how important the topic is.”—James J. O’Donnell, Provost, Georgetown University
            “A useful book to keep on your reference shelf.”—Bonita L. Wilcox, English Leadership Quarterly

This book has been very helpful in making me understand what Plagiarism is and isn't. For example, in high school, I was led to believe that it was ok for me to submit other people's academic papers as my own, provided they were relevant to the topic at hand. Now I know that in college, that behavior is unacceptable. For my first essay in college, we were supposed to write about Oedipus Rex. My high schooler self would have naively went on JSTOR and copied from the first paper I could find on the topic. In high school, I was led to believe that it was okay to turn in the work of academics as my own. They get paid to think about these topics after all. Surely, their work is better than anything I could come up with. I would then hand down the essays and projects to friends and their siblings, sometimes for a fee; Overall, it was a lucrative and productive endeavor. When I tried to do something similar during my first semester of college, my professor pulled me aside, promptly informed me that I would receive a 0 on the assignment, and warned me against doing anything like that again. After consulting this book, I came to realize that this is called "plagiarism" and is strictly prohibited. I also learned that you can't even turn in a little bit of someone else's work unless you use "quotes" and "cite it." Fortunately, after having read Doing Honest Work in College cover to cover, and I knew that that sort of behavior is considered cheating. Without this book, I almost certainly would have been expelled from my university. Thank you, Charles Lipson

Overall, this is an excellent frying pan. I use it almost every day -- my kids always want pancakes or eggs for breakfast and this cooks them both beautifully. Being health conscious, I didn’t want one of those non-stick pans, because my friend Martha from the book club says they cause cancer. This ceramic one is barely sticky at all if you use just a little drizzle of oil, otherwise you do need to scrub it a little bit, that’s the only reason it’s not five stars. The blue color also looks so pretty in my kitchen! I’ve only had it for a couple months but I like it so much I’m considering buying the whole set. For the price, I think it’s a great deal, I’ve certainly payed more for kitchenware that was on par with this lovely pan. Another bonus: it’s deep enough that you can cook pasta sauces and the like! I would absolutely recommend it to anyone who cooks regularly.

I was hoping to improve my ability to capture important times of my life in a multimedia format. I think that it's difficult to convey the mixed emotions one has at any point in there life, let alone with a single picture. But this book doesn't have a single photo in it, just text about plagarism. All my photos are my own, so I didn't get much use out of this book. I thought the title was 'Doing Honest Work in Collage', but I was mistaken. Don't let yourself make the same mistake I did, especially when you put your emotions on the line

I had an adequate experience at this restaurant, Salonica. It says that it is a Greek diner, but I found it more to be mediocre American food. Neither particularly over- nor under-whelming, I nevertheless feel somewhat whelmed, and I would have given it a 3.5 if I could. Since this website, which most likely does not use html encoding, does not permit me to do half stars, I admit that the honest thing to do is round down, because if we're going to split hairs it was really more of a 3.35 experience. The food, service, and ambience were all within the 3.13-3.47 range. I would consider revisiting if it was very convenient to do so, but most likely will be exploring other options in the Hyde Park area.

This an excellent short text for any new college student, or even high school student.  I have been recommending it to my community college students for many years, since I first read the prior edition about 10 years ago.  I even began including it in my syllabus, as a strongly recommended reading.  It offers easy to under jargon on what plagiarism is and also exposes the new student to the various different forms of academic writing styles that may be encountered during their college studies.  Also an excellent resource for tutors or parents who aid in the academic work, or high school students who want to get an early edge on future academia needs.  It is especially useful for the community college level, as it is easy to understand, however I still refer to it after many years in graduate school and teaching at the community college level.
