SJSU Attempts To Heighten Sense Of Ethics On Campus
by Becky Bartindale

"Annette Nellen had her most personal encounter with plagiarism last year after doing a Google search. The San Jose State University tax professor pulled up an award-winning student paper from a New York University Web site and -- surprise! -- she had written it two years before for a law conference.

Her experience shows how the Internet has heightened both challenges and opportunities for inhabitants of universities. For Nellen, the Web provides a chance to share research with students and colleagues around the world. But for students who either don't know how to write an academic paper or want a quick fix, it offers nearly limitless opportunities to steal other people's work."
