International perspectives on plagiarism and considerations for teaching international trainees (seminar article)

Last modified: May 10, 2017

Factors affecting the incidence of plagiarism are discussed.

Among the most important are: the normalcy of plagiarism in many environments internationally; the lack of formal misconduct policies in many countries and operationally vague policies on plagiarism where they do exist; philosophical arguments against US notions of originality, intellectual property, and authority; and non-native speakers’ difficulties in writing in English.

The authors are research ethics educators and contend that education should focus on scientific writing skills and acculturation.
