Default Question about citations and plagarism for scientific papers

I quoted a scientific paper, word for word, and cited it correctly. My instructor said this was plagarism, and docked me points , bigtime. He said "to cite correctly, you paraphrase, you dont quote word for word"

Makes no sense. As long as I cite (Kubrick, 1982, p. 32), this should be legit, even if it is word for word.

Whos with me?

If its in "quotation marks" it should be word for word. Otherwise if it wasn't, it should be paraphrased.

Direct quotes must be enclosed in quotation marks and accompanied by citations of the source and page number. It is usually a good idea to avoid direct quotation wherever possible, though, limiting direct quotes to material that is absolutely necessary to understanding the point or especially memorable or well-written points.

so yes, i think you are okay
maybe he just didnt agree with your usage of direct quotation, but calling it plagiarism is kinda stiff

Thats weird. You should be able to use word for word passages so long as in quotes. Did he specifically say beforehand that you couldn't do that?

You should be fine with quotations and source of citation.

you F*cked up without the quotes... maybe you could try to explain that you didnt know you needed quotes as long as you cited it.

but you might have to deal with the grade you got.

Ok so I missed the quotes, but is it technically plagiarism? Seems more like a grammatical error to me. I lost 40% because of plaigarism.

Why would you cite something if its not in quotes? That's were you f*cked up.

I know is an ex. but I wouldn't put something as trivial as this in quotes. Just say something something like 'according to....'

That still doesn't explain this:

Quote:
"to cite correctly, you paraphrase, you dont quote word for word"

Talk to your professor about it.

are you in college or high school?

high school teachers will probably be more leniant, but some college professors are just ***** are this kind of stuff.

i honesly don't see the problem with what you did... so what, you left out parenthesis by accident. now teachers wanna punish you for it.

but, it's part of the rules and some teachers take that very serious. sucks.

I feel like he should've cut you some slack. You obviously had the right intention. Profs should dock you for content, not some BS semantics.
