Use the Internet properly
As Journalists, we should know how to use the Internet properly.According to Theressa Collington Moore, the news researcher of WTSP TV,Tampa,Florida, Internet is a great source,but often informations are erroneous.As a small magazine, the editorial team of CRIME BRANCH , a bi-weekly crime magazine being published from Calcutta could not afford to buy photographs from professional agencies.Therefore, they download royalty free photographs from specialized websites.Similarly,they publish only permissible articles.They always believe that we should only use subscription based archival and accurate information.For this purpose,they use meta search engines rather than google or other popular search engines.Always remember that we can not or should not use copy righted materials.After all,plagiarism is not acceptable.
from Forensic Science to foreign pages, the editorial team of the magazine chooses articles with proper permission, acknowledgement and courtesy.There is a misconception that we can use any information from the Internet.But as a professional journalists, we should have knowledge that online research is an art and we must do it properly.
