Since human beings have been writing it seems there has been plagiarism. It is not something that sprouted with the advent of the Internet. Teachers have been struggling for years in countries all over the globe to find good methods for dealing with the problem of plagiarizing students. How do we spot plagiarism? How do we teach them not to plagiarize? And how do we deal with those who have been found out to be plagiarists? The purpose of this book is to collect material on the various aspects of plagiarism in education with special attention given to the German problem of dissertation plagiarism. Since there is a wide-spread interest in the German plagiarism situation and in strategies for dealing with it, the book is written in English in order to be accessible to a larger audience.
The book brings together diverse views from around the world and provides a comprehensive overview of the subject, beginning with different definitions of academic integrity through how to create the ethical academy. At the same time, the Handbook does not shy away from some of the vigorous debates in the field such as the causes of academic integrity breaches. There has been an explosion of interest in academic integrity in the last 10-20 years. New technologies that have made it easier than ever for students to 'cut and paste', coupled with global media scandals of high profile researchers behaving badly, have resulted in the perception that plagiarism is 'on the rise'. This, in combination with the massification and commercialisation of higher education, has resulted in a burgeoning interest in the importance of academic integrity, how to safeguard it and how to address breaches appropriately. What may have seemed like a relatively easy topic to address - students copying sources without attribution - has in fact, turned out to be a very complex, interdisciplinary field of research requiring contributions from linguists, psychologists, social scientists, anthropologists, teaching and learning specialists, mathematicians, accountants, medical doctors, lawyers and philosophers, to name just a few. Despite or perhaps because of this broad interest and input, there has been no single authoritative reference work which brings together the vast, growing, interdisciplinary and at times contradictory body of literature. For both established researchers/practitioners and those new to the field, this Handbook provides a one-stop-shop as well as a launching pad for new explorations and discussions.
To maintain the quality of education, integrity and honesty must be upheld by students and teachers in learning environments. The prevention of cheating is a prime factor in this endeavor. The Handbook of Research on Academic Misconduct in Higher Education is a pivotal reference source for the latest scholarly material on the implementation of policies and practices to inhibit cheating behaviors in academic settings. Highlighting emerging pedagogies, empirical-based evidence, and future directions, this book is ideally designed for professionals, practitioners, educators, school administrators, and researchers interested in preventing academic dishonesty.
Cheating in educational institutions and society not only threatens the overall quality of the education, as well as its dissemination of knowledge, but it also affects the current social fabric. With the ever-evolving realm of the internet, the scope of plagiarism has now expanded and presents new detection challenges. As such, methods, strategies, and models need to be employed to preserve the integrity of institutions of higher education (HEIs). Prevention and Detection of Academic Misconduct in Higher Education is an essential research book that analyzes traditional and contemporary methods of cheating, the prevention and detection of academic misconduct, and the cross-cultural implications of academic dishonesty. Edited by an esteemed IGI Global editor in the field of education, this publication highlights related topics including diagnostic testing, mobile technologies, and electronic plagiarism detection, making it a valuable resource for educators, administrators, academicians, researchers, and professionals seeking to maintain the creation, dissemination, and preservation of knowledge.
