Acknowledging the work of others
Originally part of work completed by the faculty at Cornell University, this document argues that students "assume certain responsibilities. Among them is . . . to make clear what knowledge is theirs and what is someone else's;" and provides advice on how to do so.
"Plagiarism.org was founded in 1996. With increased interest, Plagarism.org became one of the Internet's predominant anti-plagiarism resources for educators and students alike. Plagiarism.org is the educational arm of iParadigms LLC."
The citation project
"Preventing plagiarism is a desired outcome of our research, as the subtitle above indicates, but the Citation Project research suggests that students’ knowing how to understand and synthesize complex, lengthy sources is essential to effective plagiarism prevention. If instructors know how shallowly students are engaging with their research source—and that is what the Citation Project research reveals—then they know what responsible pedagogy needs to address."
The digital revolution & higher education
"The report is based on findings from two Pew Research Center surveys: a national poll of the general public, and a survey of college presidents done in association with The Chronicle of Higher Education. It analyzes the perceptions of the public and college presidents about the value of online learning, the prevalence and future of online courses, use of digital textbooks, the internet and plagiarism, and technology use in the classroom, as well as college presidents’ own use of technology."
Steal this report
"The Pew Research Center, in conjunction with the Chronicle of Higher Education, recently surveyed 1,055 college presidents from two- to four-year schools, private and public. More than half of those top officials said they've seen an increase in plagiarism in the past 10 years. Nearly all of them say computers and the Internet have played a major role in the rise in stealing others work and claiming it as their own."
