Description

Contrasting Decisions in Two Suspected Cases of Plagiarism: Abstract

Two students suspected of plagiarism must explain their actions to their university’s Disciplinary Committee. One is found guilty of plagiarism; the other is found innocent. This verdict is followed by a series of administrative mix-ups likely to harm the image of the university and even encourage other students to plagiarize, either during their studies or in their professional life.

Teaching objectives

This case serves to encourage students to abide by ethical standards in their academic work. They must learn to search for valid and credible primary data (e.g., evidence) and secondary data (e.g., Statistics Canada), other than the information provided in the case. It is recommended that students work alone.
