Criminology & Miscarriage of Justice: Citing Sources

Reviews reference books, databases and web sites dealing with criminology and miscarriage of justice including capital punishment.



Using the work of another scholar without proper citation, whether that work is available in print or online, is plagiarism, a violation of the Emory Honor Code. It is extremely easy for professors to discover work plagiarized from web sources -- they know how to use Google at least as well as you do, and there are many online tools available specifically to help educators detect plagiarized work.
