Machine-based plagiarism: The death of originality in the digital age?
Paraphrasing tools, translation software and 'article spinners' are text-processing applications easily found via the Internet. 'Spun' text misleads people into thinking that these tools create a new form of original writing. This thematic series will explore the use of automated text processing as an emerging threat to academic integrity.
This collection focusses on Canada and educational integrity. It lags behind other OECD nations in terms of research, particularly in the area of educational integrity (Eaton & Edino, 2018)
This collection presents original research that sheds light on emerging issues and challenges for academic integrity. The diversity of contexts studied here aims at raising questions and showcasing findings from different perspectives.
The recent explosion in contract cheating has given the international community of academic integrity scholars pause for thought. ‘Contract cheating’ is not the same as the less sinister and more widely accepted practice of ‘ghostwriting’ and has ramifications for individuals’ learning outcomes, institutional reputations, educational standards/credibility, professional practice and public safety, particularly if it is somehow normalised as an acceptable way for academic work to be accomplished.
The thematic series offers the opportunity for this emerging threat to academic integrity to be explored in-depth, and from multiple perspectives, so that meaningful responses and solutions can be instigated.
