"Avoiding Plagiarism: Mastering the Art of Scholarship"

The issue of "true scholarship" was brought up recently on this forum.

Just by accident today, while researching a totally unrelated 
subject, I stumbled upon the following web page titled:

"Avoiding Plagiarism: Mastering the Art of Scholarship"

I quote a few choice comments from this article:

"Scholarship entails researching, understanding, and building upon 
the work of others, but also requires that proper credit be given for 
any 'borrowed' material." 

"If you repeat another's exact words, you MUST use quotation marks 
and cite the source." 

"Plagiarism is dishonest because it misrepresents the work of another 
as your own." 

The whole article is worth carefully reading especially if one is 
claiming to be an advocate of "true scholarship."
