A recent article in the Chronicle of Higher Education describes the work of a professional writer who has written hundreds of papers (many at the graduate level) for students through a paper mill. The author says he wants to encourage faculty to think and talk about the issue of plagiarism on our campuses. The comments that follow the article start that conversation.
Perhaps the article and this blog post can start a conversation here – what are all of our responsibilities (faculty, librarians, administrators) in confronting this issue here at UB? We’d like to hear your thoughts.
