Abstract

Although plagiarism has traditionally been framed as an ethical issue, recent scholarship suggests that patchwriting should be framed as an issue of academic literacies. In this section, Sandra Jamieson examines the history of instruction in source-based writing, focusing her history on the scholarship addressing patchwriting. Lee Adams' synthesis of research on students' motivations and beliefs reveals widespread confusion about the most basic concepts concerning plagiarism. Diane Pecorari overviews the research on EAP plagiarism as it addresses questions of ethics and literacy. Tricia Serviss describes possibilities for faculty development programs that would encourage a distinction between ethical and literacy issues in transgressive student writing as it addresses questions of ethics and literacy.
