Presentation Description

We will present data from a survey of over 1000 science students regarding source use, citation and academic dishonesty. Preliminary analysis of this data suggests that incoming freshmen have a poor understanding of which sources are appropriate, how to cite them and have trouble recognizing subtle examples of academic dishonesty.
