Your description of the emotional tangle that accompanies a plagiarism case is spot-on. I go there every time. The material you provide on plagiarism & our response is amazing, overwhelming. I've been in it for the last hour, and all the voices and advice begin to sound a lot alike after awhile -- and to not be all that helpful, beyond making the writing teacher painfully aware that we're out-gunned. It's no wonder that one of the most common responses I see is to pretend plagiarism doesn't exist.
I was taken by the CQ Researcher article, though (, and its account of retribution upon and abandonment of faculty who punish plagiarists. I've not heard this sort of story before, and I'm wondering if it's common.
Thanks, Holly, for a great piece.


I liked this post very much as it has helped me a lot in my research and is quite interesting as well. Thank you for sharing this information with us.
