In this month's Ask WriteCheck column, a student asks whether citations are needed on a PowerPoint slide.
To prevent a charge of plagiarism, what kind of citations should you use on a Powerpoint slide, especially if the slides are used as a handout? Are the rules the same as on a paper or essay? If you post the Powerpoint presentation on-line, do you need to also post a back-up paper with proper citations as part of the file?
What should I do?
