Central Library, JNU is organizing Workshop on

Plagiarism and Reference Management
For Research Scholars of the University

at Central Library, JNU, New Delhi on 20th – 21st Feb, 2015

About the Workshop

The workshop aims to sensitize the participants on 'Issues related to Plagiarism' and how the power of reference manager can be used in their research activities. The focus of the workshop is to provide hands-on training on "Mendeley – a free reference manager" to the participants.

Plagiarism is considered as a form of misconduct in scholarly communications. You, as a researcher, must have heard about it; or you might know what it is. However, there exists ambiguity about it in academic community. When does plagiarism occur? Is there any established percentage to determine when plagiarism has taken place? Is there a rule of thumb to determine plagiarism? Are there different types of it? What may be the consequences if plagiarism is detected? How to avoid it? This workshop aims to address these types of questions.

Use of reference manager can be a powerful addition to your research activities. Mendeley is a free Reference Manager and Academic Social Network that can assist you in managing references, research papers (PDFs), annotating your PDFs, taking searchable notes, citing while you are writing, automatically creating bibliographies, syncing your account between multiple computers, collaborating, and discovering new research in fields of interest.
