Lorem About Academic Writing and Plagiarism Plagiarism has long been regarded with concern by the university community as a serious act of wrongdoing threatening core academic values. There has been a perceived increase in plagiarism over recent years, due in part to issues raised by the new media, a diverse student population and the rise in English as a lingua franca.
This book examines plagiarism, the inappropriate relationship between a text and its sources, from a linguistic perspective.
Using empirical data drawn from a large sample of student writing, compared against written sources, Academic Writing and Plagiarism argues that some plagiarism, in this linguistic context, can be regarded as a failure of pedagogy rather than a deliberate attempt to transgress.
Academic Writing and Plagiarism is a cutting-edge research monograph which will be essential reading for researchers in applied linguistics. Why the need for a linguistic analysis? It includes much of the key literature on the topic, and its use of empirical evidence to support its argument is particularly valuable.
Plagiarism is a common (and often misunderstood) problem that is often the result of a lack of knowledge and skills. Our mission is to support the education community with a comprehensive set of resources to help students write with integrity. Academic Writing and Plagiarism is a cutting-edge research monograph which will be essential reading for researchers in applied linguistics.

Plagiarism is a breach of academic integrity. It is a principle of intellectual honesty that all members of the academic community should acknowledge their debt to the originators of the ideas, words, and data which form the basis for their own work.
It is important to appreciate that mastery of the techniques of academic writing is not. In the academic world, plagiarism is considered as a serious offense because stealing the work of another writer is an unacceptable tactic. Today, falling into the plagiarism trap became very easy and even tempting because the Internet has all information that could possibly be needed for a research.
At UNC, plagiarism is defined as “the deliberate or reckless representation of another’s words, thoughts, or ideas as one’s own without attribution in connection with submission of academic work, whether graded or otherwise.”.
