BANDUNG-Making scientific work by quoting from the internet is still questionable the validity. This was expressed by Minister of Female Empowerment and Child Protection, Yohana Yambise as the keynote speaker in a seminar on literacy in front of the civitas academica of Nursing Academy Muhammadiyah Bandung, Thursday (20/7).
"These day there is a tendency to copy and paste from the internet, but for scientific work such as essay, dissertation and thesis can not carelessly quote the theory of writing that spread on the internet," she said.
According to Yohana, so far the citation theory in scientific work that still recognized is from a book that has clear author and publisher.
"So, we still have to read books as literacy materials, do not rely on the internet!. It could be from the internet, but should hav a clear and official journal sites that are usually published by colleges or other educational institutions, because it contains various academic papers which can be accounted for, "he explained.
