Keeping Current on Plagiarism, Cheating & Academic Integrity by Susan Herzog, Information Literacy Librarian, Eastern Connecticut State University

By RITA DELFINER, New York Post Online Edition
October 22, 2004

"Nearly all U.S. high school students talk the talk that honesty is the best policy--while at the same time, many of them are lying, cheating and stealing, according to a new study. A national survey of 24,763 high-schoolers found 62 percent of them admitted cheating on a school test in the past 12 months, 27 percent stole something from a store during that period, and 40 percent admit they 'sometimes lie to save money.' In a telling twist, nearly a third didn't even tell the truth on the integrity survey--29 percent of the students polled by the Josephson Institute of Ethics 'fessed up to fibbing on one or two of the more than 60 questions."

Lipson delves into academic dishonesty
By Yuefan Weng, Chicago Maroon
October 28, 2004

"Hongtae Kim, a second-year economics concentrator, is the perfect candidate to read political science professor Charles Lipson's new book Doing Honest Work in College. 'I actually had an experience in cheating before, Kim said. But even though I was not caught, I felt horrible afterward and I now believe that we are mature enough to be responsible for our own work.' In an interview, Lipson said the Internet has created a resource arena with no clear ownership rights, resulting in a virtual free-for-all forum for students to garner fraudulent information and papers."

Is cheating a necessary survival tool?
News Sentinel | 10/25/2004 |
By Mike Manuel in the South Side Times

"Nearly a quarter of a century ago, if you cheated in school, you were looked down upon, not only by your teachers and parents but also by your peers as well. Those who accompanied daily life around you made sure that the traditional morals and ethics of the learning atmosphere were protected on a day-to-day basis. Obviously, this has dramatically changed since the mid-1900s."
