Piecing together texts from one or more sources and linking them

The following in a paper is plagiarism:


Employees must be given control of their work environment to feel responsible for their successes and failures. This is called employee involvement, designed to encourage increased commitment to the organisation’s success.


A correct way of referencing the paragraph is:

‘Employees must be assigned control of their work environment to feel responsible for their successes and failures’ (McShane & Travaglione 2003, p. 199). Robbins, et al. (2001 p. 237) call this ‘employee involvement …designed to encourage increased commitment to the organisation’s success’.



Table 11

Integrating ideas from multiple sources

A good model of how to integrate ideas from multiple sources.

Read through the example. Note:



  1. Usually the first sentence is a statement of proposition introducing the ideas that you want to put forward in the paragraph.

  2. Then support the proposition by at least one or more authorities.

  3. Include a statement of opinions contrary to the proposition (demonstrates that you have considered all sides to the argument).

  4. Summarise your argument or proposition in your own words.




Eunson (1987, p. 67) defines motivation as ‘what is important to you’, and explores the importance of ‘money as a motivator’. However, recent studies outlined by Leonard, Beauvais and Scholl (1999) suggest that personality and disposition play an equally important role in motivation.
