Understanding how faculty members act when faced with plagiarism: A cross-cultural review«

Project Details


This study aims to expand research on student plagiarism in higher education and ways of dealing with it. The participants consist of university professors from faculties of business and management in different countries who reported on the strategies they adopt when detecting plagiarism. The study is a literature review based on findings related to detection methods and the interpretive approach is used to examine the experiences of the participants. One of the findings of this research that is considered key to higher education policies is: the topic of plagiarism and its treatment must be regulated in a coherent and uniform way. This means that handling procedures must comply with university policies. Policies must incorporate the level of gravity and the corresponding penalties according to the infraction. This would involve standardizing the way in which plagiarism is treated and would encourage faculty members to take part in the creation of a culture of integrity.
