Description
Plagiarism abounds on American college campuses. This paper first examines reasons that college students cheat, using both the perspective of student respondents and the observations of the faculty authors. Next, the paper examines the two strategies which can be taken to combat student plagiarism: prevention and detection. Specific strategies are offered for each approach.
