Academic plagiarism : understanding it to take responsible actionWith the proliferation of the Internet, overcoming plagiarism seems insurmountable for students, teachers and researchers, who tend to find little choice between academia and the law in this regard. With a multidisciplinary approach and twenty years of expertise and research on this topic, Prof. Bergadaà proposes a concrete methodology for addressing this issue, both for the plagiarised and plagiariser, as well as for the institutions and associations. Researchers, students, directors of journals and institutions, as well as other actors in the scientific arena such as policy makers and lawyers are all concerned with preserving the value of integrity at the core of research ethics.
