Plagiarism on college campuses is a well-documented problem. Much of the emphasis is placed on undergraduate education and the need to teach students how to correctly integrate writing into their courses. What is less often discussed is the growth of cheating and plagiarism in graduate and professional schools. In fact, while rates of cheating among graduate students are lower than among undergraduates, they are not substantially lower. The paper, Ph.D. in "Cut-and-Paste"?, provides insight into the growing problem of plagiarism in graduate programs, and why it may be particularly prevalent in STEM disciplines and among ESL students, highlights consequences and types of plagiarism facing graduate students and scholars, and offers educational solutions to preventing plagiarism within the graduate community.
