New Publication: Understanding Plagiarism

Iryna Pentina, Leonard Love and myself are proud to announce the release of a study examining backgrounds of academic dishonesty.  In "Plagiarism: what don't they know?" we examine student awareness and understanding about their roles and responsibilities related to plagiarism.  The article is in print in the January 2012 issue of the Journal of Education for Business.

Our findings suggest that students are reasonably well informed on the meaning and importance of plagiarism.  However, our findings also suggest that gaps exist in understanding what specifically constitutes plagiarism.  Interestingly, the gaps are different for online-only students and more traditional, face to face students.  Further, there are some specific items which most students generally exhibit misunderstandings.
