Abstract

Plagiarism is a major issue in academic institutions. This study investigated the views on plagiarism of students and staff at Australian universities in Singapore, through surveys and interviews. Students were found to have misconceptions about many aspects of plagiarism such as recycling, reuse of a friend's work and collusion within groupwork. Uncertainty levels were high in students from nearby countries. From the theoretical framework proposed in this study, a set of recommendations is suggested to minimise plagiarism within a transnational higher education environment, and promote the fostering of academic integrity. Findings and recommendations may be applicable to other educational environments.
