Modern day research publications are increasingly based on predecessor work, whether as academically formally published in journal or conference format, or as WWW-available documents such as commercial sites, Wikis, or blogs. It is now very easy to copy and paste information from all these available sources. Indeed, the proliferation of available information provides significant potential content that can be included into new publications. Notwithstanding, Law and Academic Professional Ethics protect the existing information and merely copy and paste without appropriate attribution, citation, or visual format is contrary to one or both of these protections. This 'workshop' talk explores the basics of the law and ethics involved in research publications. The talk is ideal for those students who are beginning their academic careers, as well as for faculty who wish to review the issues involved in ethical publications. Specifically, this talk focuses on intellectual property and professional ethics, how to cite, and plagiarism. A 10-question test completes the workshop part of this talk.
