At Issue: Academic Integrity, an Annotated Bibliography


Pricer, Wayne F., Community College Enterprise


Introduction

Academic integrity is central to the heart of any academic institution, yet the topic is a complex one. In the first installment of a two-part feature, a bibliography will address the subjects of copyright and plagiarism. In the second segment, which will be published in the Fall 2009 issue of The Community College Enterprise, the academic integrity resources will focus on cheating online and in the classroom, grade inflation, and faculty rating websites.

Resources for exploring common campus copyright and fair use issues seek to answer common, frequently misunderstood questions such as what exactly does "copyright" mean? What restrictions does it establish? What are the consequences of violating copyright laws? What exactly does "fair use" mean? How far does it go and how does one recognize having gone beyond fair use? Student and faculty perceptions of plagiarism have perhaps always been at odds with each other, but in the Information Age with virtually anything at one's finger tips on the Internet, the problem of appropriately giving credit for sources is greatly compounded. How do students and faculty determine what is considered "common knowledge" and what must be credited to a particular source? And what if the authorship of information on the Internet is not clearly provided? Resources that suggest strategies and techniques for dealing with plagiarism may begin with teaching proper documentation for standard print sources before attempting the much thornier approaches for properly documenting online sources. Then, how does one deal with both intentional and unintentional plagiarism? What online software is available for searching and identifying plagiarized material? How reliable and effective is it? Finally, is the definition of "plagiarism" evolving from what it once was to what it has now become in the Age of Information?
