PlagiarismAdvice.org have been providing resources, training, advice and guidance to all areas of the education sector since 2002 when the service was founded by JISC as the JISC Plagiarism Advisory Service to help address growing concerns about plagiarism within the UK HE and FE sectors. PlagiarismAdvice.org now operates independently of JISC.
PlagiarismAdvice.org promotes good practice and provides guidance in all aspects of plagiarism prevention, and encourages rewarding and authentic work from students at all levels. The service also provides access to, and support for the TurnitinUK plagiarism detection software, used widely by UK universities, colleges and schools.
PlagiarismAdvice.org currently offers the following services to the education sector:
A wide range of good practice examples, which have been sourced and developed by the academic community, including downloadable tip sheets
An international conference which showcases innovative practice in this area. Our fourth biennial conference will take place in 2010
Onsite and online training and guidance sessions
A UK user group which meets regularly to share good practice and discuss use and implementation of TurnitinUK and associated issues
