Conquering Plagiarism in Nursing Research and Authorship JULY 2018

Contributing to the science of nursing helps advance the nursing profession and improve patient outcomes. Essential to this success is encouragement of and support for ethical health research and authorship. Plagiarism, whether in a report, journal manuscript, grant proposal, or term paper, violates the trust between reader and author. If words or ideas have been borrowed from others (or even from an author’s previous work), the reader assumes that an ethical author will disclose that information. This article discusses plagiarism in publishing and research settings and examines why it’s a professional nursing concern, and how you can avoid self-plagiarism in your work.
