Stephens, Jason M. – Change: The Magazine of Higher Learning, 2019
Epidemic is an apt adjective for describing the problem of academic dishonesty. When asked if they have cheated in the past year, a "disproportionately large number" (i.e., the majority) of secondary and tertiary students in the United States (and in every other country in which it's been studied) report having done so. The problem of…

Hazelkorn, Ellen; Gibson, Andrew – Higher Education: The International Journal of Higher Education Research, 2019
