Bermingham, Vera; Watson, Susan; Jones, Martin
Assessment & Evaluation in Higher Education, v35 n1 p1-15 Jan 2010
The discussion of issues relating to academic dishonesty in the UK higher education sector has become increasingly intense in recent years and has often been subject to the media spotlight. This study examines the policies, procedures and penalties at law schools across the UK when dealing with allegations of plagiarism. Data were obtained in two stages via questionnaires and structured interviews with members of staff. The considerable degree of diversity which emerges is discussed and the possible implications of such diversity are examined. (Contains 4 tables.)
