Almost all of the academic journals selected for this topic discuss the ethical dilemma that this generation faces with the increased use of the Internet in the digital age. In a literature review, when looking at the impact of the Internet on research methods of students and plagiarism in student papers, I would separate my topic into three separate sections. Each of the articles, I selected for this topic, feeds off each other imposing different ideas that lead to the same path.
First, I would introduce the topic of plagiarism and how it defaces the academic integrity of a student. I would use the following articles assist in completing this section: (1) Plagiarism in the Internet Age; (2) Academic Dishonesty: Are more students cheating?; (3) Rethinking Plagiarism in the Digital Age; and (4) Education undergraduates and ICT-enhanced academic dishonesty: A moral panic?.
Secondly, I would introduce the topic and go on to discuss my findings in preventative measures that can be taken to prevent plagiarism and follow-up with deterrents found in the following academic journals: (1) Avoid the Plague: Tips and Tricks for Preventing and Detecting Plagiarism; (2) Academic Dishonesty: Behaviors, Sanctions, and Retention of Adjudicated College Students; (3) Using Writing Assignment Designs to Mitigate Plagiarism; (4) Cheating. Research Brief.
The deterrents would also include electronic detection software commonly used to assist educators in finding students who plagiarize their work and students unwilling to take the risk because of it. The articles I chose that best support this system include: (1) An evaluation of the use of Turnitin for electronic submission and marking and as a formative feedback tool from an educator's perspective and (2) Turnitin Systems: A Deterrent to Plagiarism in College Classrooms.
Finally, I would summarize the ethical dilemmas addressed in my first section, preventative techniques used, and deterrents including Turnitin....
