Perspectives on Plagiarism from ESL Students in Hong Kong.
Deckert, Glenn D.
Journal of Second Language Writing, v2 n2 p131-48 May 1993
A study of 170 first-year and 41 third-year Chinese university science majors suggests that first-year students had little familiarity with the Western notion of plagiarism, poor ability to recognize it, and less concern with the rights of the original writer. Third-year students had greater concern for the issue of honesty. The questionnaire is appended. (18 references) (Author/LB)
