Academic offence related to plagiarism suggestions

My name is David. Currently, I am enrolled in a PhD program at a well reputed university in USA. At the very beginning of the semester, one day I talked with the Prof. (Very new in the department, first time he is offering this course) after finishing lecture because he is copying everything from a website even the assignments. He did not change anything in the assignment even the numeric values. I draw his attention. He did not take it seriously but giving me hard time throughout the whole semester. He accused me of copying four sentences from Wikipedia in one of my assignment. It’s a 12 page assignment completely based on experimental result. I got the result and then I described the results while I was describing the result four of the sentences exactly match with Wikipedia. I totally forget to add reference. However, I added references everywhere as it requires. During coding in C++, I did not copy a single line from anywhere all of my own codes but Prof. accused me that I modified some codes from online sources that even I do not know. [more inside]

I want to write-up, but Academic Research has re-wired my brain!

The way I research (academic or otherwise) is increasingly incompatible with the tools I have. Reams of handwritten notebooks, and hundreds of word docs vs a highly tagged website only add to my self-created confusion. I'm drawn to Tinderbox software as a possible solution, but as an adamant PC user I'm locked out. How do you order your research? / How to write-up my PhD now my brain is fried? [more inside]

Herbs/supplements for academic writing?

I am in the last two weeks of writing my master's thesis and I was wondering what herbs or supplements others have found useful for writing. Focus is part of it, but I also need to produce and get in the flow, so to speak. It comes sometimes, but I can never force those really productive moments. I have a cupboard full of various herbs, but no time to experiment. Wondering what has worked for other, including combinations. [more inside]
