REGISTER TODAY ________________________________________________________________ The Myth of the Plagiarism-Proof Paper Instructors: Ann Lathrop and Kathleen Foss, co-authored Guiding Students from Cheating and Plagiarism to Honesty and Integrity: Strategies for Change and Student Cheating and Plagiarism in the Internet Era: A Wake-up Call. New techniques and greater vigilance are required if we truly care about whether students today are producing authentic research papers. The relative ease of cutting and pasting Internet pages, or even downloading entire papers from on-line papermills, has replaced copying from books, encyclopedias, or magazines. This creates a dilemma for educators who don't want to turn the research process into a game of "Catch Me If You Can." Yet the teaching of basic research and writing skills is a crucial component of our educational process. Our goal is to create an ethical atmosphere that encourages students to take pride in their own best efforts so that "catching" them becomes unnecessary. We advocate replacing the usual emphasis on a research paper with the concept of a research process structured in such a way that plagiarizing is no longer worth the effort.
