Now that you have familiarized yourself with the U.S. regulatory approach and gained insight into the European legislation from EASA. Consider both approaches and compare them among their respective advantages and disadvantages. Internet sources must be analyzed and documented the same as any other sources you utilize in the writing of a paper. Be careful that the material you are using is from a legitimate source; just because it is written does not make it true. No standard method for documenting Internet sources has emerged, but the citations should include the name of the author and title of the item the same information as any other source you might use. In addition, you must give the URL (Uniform Resource Locator) or web address for the item you are using. Finally, give the date that the item was written. If that information is not available, list the date on which you accessed the page.
PlagiarismPlagiarism is the use of someone else’s ideas without giving proper acknowledgment. The term “plagiarism” includes, but is not limited to, the use, by paraphrase or direct quotation, of the published or unpublished work of another person without full and clear acknowledgment. It also includes the unacknowledged use of materials prepared by another person or agency engaged in the furnishing or selling of term papers or other academic materials. The Modern Language Association’s MLA Handbook for Writers of Research Papers defines plagiarism as follows:
- repeating another’s sentences as your own,
- adopting a particularly apt phrase as your own,
- paraphrasing someone else’s argument as your own,
- presenting someone else’s line of thinking in the development of a thesis as though it were your own.
