The Illusory Dichotomy of Plagiarism
Stuhmcke, Anita; Booth, Tracey; Wangmann, Jane
Assessment & Evaluation in Higher Education, v41 n7 p982-995 2016
Plagiarism has been characterised as a "major problem" for universities. While tensions between students and universities are inevitable, the problem with the existing system of plagiarism management and prevention is that it operates to problematise the relationship between the university and the student, rather than address the core academic issues. As a result, a dichotomy is created where the student interest is constructed as adverse to that of the institution. This article argues that de-dichotomisation of the current polarity of plagiarism will open space for alternative thoughtful considerations in dealing with plagiarism positively in an institutional context.
