Student Plagiarism in Higher Education (London:Routledge) is a collection of essays on student plagiarism and its causes. Each chapter poses a question about an essential aspect of plagiarism and examines the central theoretical, ethical and technical questions which surround it. It addresses questions which are vexing in teaching practice, but for which ready answers are not available in professional skills development materials. It relates plagiarism to wider issues of learning and intellectual development and collates the thinking of scholars on the topic of plagiarism from different areas of the academy.
