"A SURVEY commissioned by the Times Higher Education Supplement has found that almost half of academics felt pressured to pass students who they felt should have failed, and about a fifth admitted to turning a blind eye to plagiarism....Professor Fouracre, confirmed that plagiarism is still taken very seriously, but the problem is proving it. 'As the anti-plagiarism software improves though, the situation will get better'. Concerns over plagiarism come alongside news that the search engine Google have recently launched ‘Google scholar’ – a new service which searches through academic material such as journals, papers and libraries.
