Wherever I am, the world comes after me.
It offers me its busyness. It does not believe that I do not want it.
Now I understand 
why the old poets of China went so far
and high 
into the mountains, then crept into the pale mist.
"The Old Poets of China" by Mary Oliver

    Writing Guide

    Doing and Writing a Literature Review
    Watch the webinar, Reviewing and Writing a Literature Review, organized in March 2022 by the University Library.

    Common Pitfalls to Avoid in Academic Writing
    • Lack of a clear, well-stated argument.
    • Unclear connection between theoretical framework/objectives on the one hand, and actual analysis on the other.
    • Unsubstantiated claims
    • Poor structure/flow of discussion. Use headings/subheadings. Microsoft's Navigation Pane is a useful writing tool to help you keep on track. 
    • Improper/lack of citations (See "Research Ethics" tab)

    Try To:
    • Establish how your analysis/paper differs from the existing literature.
    • Specify your argument. Do not just say this paper will describe, explain, etc.
    • Avoid writing long sentences. Refrain from cramming too many ideas in a sentence, or in a section.

    Research Ethics

    Respect copyright and observe fair use

    In your research, please observe/respect authors' copyright, so ask permission from the author and/or publisher if you are going to reproduce a photograph in a paper you intend to publish it.  Fair use allows brief quotations or excerpts from a work (i.e. you are going to critique a work or theory), but when in doubt, please ask permission. In quoting, please observe proper citation and paraphrasing practices.
    To learn more, watch this webinar, "The Perks and Pitfalls of Copyright and Fair Use," organized by the University Main Library on 14 March 2022.

    Read and Watch: Types of Plagiarism

    Watch: "Thou Shall Not Plagiarize"

    Here's a short YouTube video from the Main Library defining and giving examples of plagiarism, as well as the consequences thereof.

    Plagiarism in the Concise APA Handbook

    According to the Concise APA Handbook: APA 7th Edition, here are several types of plagiarism
          • "Using translation software, without clearly indicating which part of the text was translated and which software was used for the trans- lation work (of course using a dictionary to translate individual words or phrases is perfectly fine, indeed learners with additional languages should do so),
          • Patch writing, and
          • Having your writing corrected by someone who is better at writing" (2020, p. 6).
    The handbook also covers self-plagiarism as a form of plagiarism. You still have to quote your own work as necessary.

    Proper Paraphrasing/Summarizing

    While paraphrased content entails using your own words and your own syntactic strucutre, please still enclose in quotation marks keyword(s) or keyphrase(s) in the original, and then include the page number (if any) in your in-text citations. It is not enough to just place an in-text citation.
    Also, substituting words while retaining the syntatic structure of the sentence (s) is still a form of plagiarism.
    You may download the Concise APA Handbook 7th Edition is available for download via EBSCO (via OpenAthens). Please visit this page to access the link (UP Mail log-in required). See Chapters 2, 3, 4 in particular.

    The China Book Center

    Overview and List

    View the Contents of the Collection
    The China Book Center covers a wide range of themes on Chinese history, politics, literature, culture, philosophy, economy, and science and technology. It aims to help enrich the China Studies Program of the UP Asian Center. It aims to raise awareness of Filipino students on Chinese history, politics, society and culture, and help foster dialogue and goodwill between the Philippines and China.
    This guide presents China in contemporary times (1998–2020). It covers language and literature, politics and government, economic conditions, and health. From the collection, it is possible to describe China and how its people lived during the 20th century. Artists may use the information to aid them in appreciating fine arts in the eyes of local and foreign authors. Librarians are presented with sources emphasizing the importance of documents as seen from the perspective of Chinese culture. It provides information resources mostly from books, knowledge on language, folklore, tales, and guidebooks on reading, writing, and speaking learning Chinese for educators. The collection presents interesting resources on power relations, business activities, technology-related and culture-specific initiatives in Xi Jinping’s leadership.  
    In 2021, the collection was determined to have 880 titles and 1627 items consisting of books, brochures, pamphlets, postcards, posters, CD-ROMs, DVDs, online resources, and others in the form of kits, bookcases, bags, and envelopes. These resources are closed-shelved and made accessible through an advance notice addressed to the reference desk.
    The guide has three parts: the introduction provides the summary of the collection, followed by the bibliographic information of the resources, and ends with the subject index. Researchers are encouraged to acquaint themselves with the information about the collection, statements guiding the use of the collection, and its scope and content. The midpart contains the bibliographic information of each item, arranged by format and alphabetically. Each format is provided with the columns for location, the description of the material represented with the bibliographic record, and the date of publication. From here, researchers identify the material needed and seek the assistance of the reference desk. Similarly, for the subject index, researchers look for the subject of interest by going over the list provided in the last ten pages of the guide and then seeking the assistance of the reference desk.
    After scanning the list, researchers will only need to identify the resources or subject of interest and approach the reference desk for assistance. For further information, contact Alessandra A. Guimba (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.) or Kjun Katigbak (This email address is being protected from spambots.
