Abstract

Plagiarism presents a paradox: academic institutions devote increasing resources to preventing and detecting it, and yet these efforts do not appear to have resulted in a decrease in plagiarism. Research in English for Academic Purposes (EAP) has suggested one explanation for this: avoiding plagiarism requires very strong academic literacy skills. This session focuses on the skills students need to write conventionally, meet expectations, and therefore avoid accusations of plagiarism.
