A New Book on Plagiarism

Reviewed in this week's Times Higher is "Academic Writing and Plagiarism: A Linguistic Analysis" by Diane Pecorari.

The book covers the alarm about plagiarism in HE and details the systems put into place to combat the problem. The author's response though is that the solution is through the pedagogic approach to be taken by lecturers - essentially how can we teach our way out of the problem?

Even without reading the book, there are plenty of thought proviking ideas in the review itself - the review can be found here.
