“Facilitating Research with Integrity on the Internet”
This site originated with a workshop at the Friends Association for Higher Education Annual Conference at Guilford College, Greensboro, NC, June 14-17, 2001. It is maintained by David R. Ross, Associate Professor, Department of Economics, Bryn Mawr College, and Barbara Addison, Librarian, Friends Historical Library & Peace Collection, Swarthmore College.
The goal of this site is to bring together resources that facilitate the ethical use of the Internet and related technologies to support scholarship, learning and teaching. A motivating premise is that the heritage and continuing engagement of the Religious Society of Friends (Quakers) with integrating spiritual commitment, academic excellence, and social responsibility usefully informs this task.
Basic steps in reducing plagiarism:
Model respectful citation behavior
Make citation guides readily available
Avoid generic assignments
Shift the evaluative focus from the finished product to the stages of scholarship– Encourage rewrites
The Swarthmore-Bryn Mawr-Haverford report recommended that faculty “could address the problem of plagiarism from the Web by formulating assignments that go beyond information gathering; for example, by asking students to write an essay that poses a question rather than answering one.”
