Style Manual

Citation Style

Which style do I use?

Statistics may use any of the standard citation styles, check with your instructor on the preferred style manual. This List of Style Manuals shows the possibilities. If your paper is for a discipline which uses statistical information, use the citation style for that discipline.

You will often need to use a piece of software called TeX for formatting mathematical formulae in papers. The American Mathematical Society has more information available here.

 

Academic Integrity at Dominican

From page 29 of the 2008-2010 Undergraduate Bulletin:

Academic Integrity Policy
Students of the university must conduct themselves in accordance with the highest standards of academic honesty and integrity. Failure to maintain academic integrity will not be tolerated. The following definitions are provided for understanding and clarity.

Definitions of Plagiarism, Cheating and
Academic Dishonesty

Student plagiarism is the deliberate presentation of the writing or thinking of another as the student’s own. In written or oral work a student may make fair use of quotations, ideas, images, etc., that appear in others’ work only if the student gives appropriate credit to the original authors, thinkers, owners or creators of that work. This includes material found on the Internet and in electronic databases.

Cheating entails the use of unauthorized or prohibited aids in accomplishing assigned academic tasks. Obtaining unauthorized help on examinations, using prohibited notes on closed-note examinations, and depending on others for the writing of essays or the creation of other assigned work are all forms of cheating.

Academic dishonesty may also include other acts intended to misrepresent the authorship of academic work or to undermine the integrity of the classroom or of grades assigned for academic work. Deliberate acts threatening the integrity of library materials or the smooth operation of laboratories are among possible acts of academic dishonesty.
