I found a table that exactly fits my needs but the technical nature of its contents makes paraphrasing very difficult, and in most cases impossible.
How does one create a one-to-one copy of a table, column titles and all, without committing plagiarism? Is a citation in the title enough? Placing quotation marks around the contents of every cell doesn't seem to be the proper course of action.
The closest question/answer I can find is here. Does that answer still apply here if:
- we're talking about protocols, standardization bodies, port numbers etc.
- Not two related studies using same pool of participants by the same author. Distinct authors, distinct applications, other author did great work in creating the summary table.
