Wherever I am, the world comes after me.
It offers me its busyness. It does not believe that I do not want it.
Now I understand 
why the old poets of China went so far
and high 
into the mountains, then crept into the pale mist.
"The Old Poets of China" by Mary Oliver

    Writing Guide: Ongoing Construction

    Common Pitfalls to Avoid
    • Lack of a clear, well-stated argument.
    • Unclear connection between theoretical framework/objectives on the one hand, and actual analysis on the other.
    • Unsubstantiated claims
    • Poor structure/flow of discussion. Use headings/subheadings. Microsoft's Navigation Pane is a useful writing tool to help you keep on track. 
    • Improper/lack of citations (See "Research Ethics" tab)
    Try To:
    • Establish how your analysis/paper differs from the existing literature.
    • Specify your argument. Do not just say this paper will describe, explain, etc.
    • Avoid writing long sentences. Refrain from cramming too many ideas in a sentence, or in a section.

    Research Ethics

    Respect copyright and observe fair use

    In your research, please observe/respect authors' copyright, so ask permission from the author and/or publisher if you are going to reproduce a photograph in a paper you intend to publish it.  Fair use allows brief quotations or excerpts from a work (i.e. you are going to critique a work or theory), but when in doubt, please ask permission. In quoting, please observe proper citation and paraphrasing practices.

    Data Privacy in Research

    Please observe the data privacy policy of UP Diliman when conducting your research. This can help you uphold and protect the rights of your informants, as applicable, and help ensure your compliance with general principles of research ethics. You may view the text version or view an infographic-style summary.

    Anti-Plagiarism

     

    Types of Plagiarism

    According to the Concise APA Handbook: APA 7th Edition, here are several types of plagiarism
        • "Using translation software, without clearly indicating which part of the text was translated and which software was used for the trans- lation work (of course using a dictionary to translate individual words or phrases is perfectly fine, indeed learners with additional languages should do so),
        • Patch writing, and
        • Having your writing corrected by someone who is better at writing" (2020, p. 6).
    The handbook also covers self-plagiarism as a form of plagiarism. You still have to quote your own work as necessary.

    Paraphrasing Tips

    Paraphrasing is essential in academic writing. While paraphrased content entails using your own words and your own syntactic strucutre, please still enclose in quotation marks keyword(s) or keyphrase(s) in the original, and then include the page number in your in-text citations. It is not enough to just place an in-text citation. Also, substituting words while retaining the syntatic structure of the sentence (s) is still a form of plagiarism.
    You may download the APA Guidelines in Paraphrasing and Avoiding Plagiarism. The Concise APA Handbook 7th Edition is available for download via EBSCO (via OpenAthens). Please visit this page to access the link (UP Mail log-in required). See Chapters 2 and 3.
