For further information on plagiarism on college campuses, we recommend the following:
Haviland, C. P., & Mullin, J. A. (Eds.). (2009). Who Owns This Text? Plagiarism, Authorship, and Disciplinary Cultures. Logan, UT: Utah State University Press. Main Library: PN167.W46 2009. (196 pages). The editors and authors address this topic from a teaching perspective. They consider the ways in which intellectual property (IP) is defined by academics in different disciplines, and urge educators to impart that discipline-based understanding to their students. Five chapters cover the areas of computer science, chemistry/biology, anthropology/sociology, art, and administration, framed by a substantial introduction and conclusion that present useful overviews of current thinking about plagiarism.
