Abstract:

With considerations for students, faculty members, librarians, and researchers, this book will explain and help to mitigate plagiarism in higher education contexts.

Plagiarism is a complex issue that affects many stakeholders in higher education, but it isn't always well understood. This text provides an in-depth, evidence-based understanding of plagiarism with the goal of engaging campus communities in informed conversations about proactive approaches to plagiarism.

Offering practical suggestions for addressing plagiarism campus-wide, this book tackles such messy topics as self-plagiarism, plagiarism among international students, essay mills, and contract cheating. It also answers such tough questions as:

  • Why do students plagiarize, and why don't faculty always report it?
  • Why are plagiarism cases so hard to manage?
  • What if researchers themselves plagiarize?
  • How can we design better learning assessments to prevent plagiarism?
  • When should we choose human detection versus text-matching software?
  • This nonjudgmental book focuses on academic integrity from a teaching and learning perspective, offering comprehensive insights into various aspects of plagiarism with a particular lens on higher education to benefit the entire campus community.


    • Provides a comprehensive treatment of plagiarism in higher education
    • Candidly presents tough topics, such as self-plagiarism and essay mills
    • Draws from the scholarly literature to empower educators, librarians, and students to think proactively about plagiarism prevention
