The Case of the Pilfered Paper: Implications of Online Writing Assistance and Web-Based Plagiarism Detection Services
Morgan, Phoebe; Vaughn, Jacqueline
PS: Political Science and Politics, v43 n4 p755-758 Oct 2010
While there is nothing new about academic dishonesty, how it is committed, prevented, and detected has been dramatically transformed by the advent of online technologies. This article briefly describes the concurrent emergence of online writing assistance services and Web-based plagiarism detection tools and examines the implications of both for student-faculty relations, faculty workload, and student learning. Finally, we provide three alternative strategies for deterring, detecting, and documenting all forms of plagiarism.
