There is so much talk about plagiarism and other issues of academic integrity, shouldn't this be a solved problem with modern computing?
Actually, plagiarism is not trivial to detect, except for extremely blatant copy & paste jobs. Other types of academic integrity violations can be even more difficult to detect, for example ghostwriting or image issues.
In this webinar we will explore examples of various types of plagiarism found in the VroniPlag Wiki documentations of plagiarism in doctorates and habilitations. Then we will look at why software is not able to detect many types of plagiarism but a reader's sharp eye can discern academic integrity issues. Other academic integrity issues such as self-plagiarism, ghostwriting and image issues will also be discussed.
