Abstract

This paper focuses on academic integrity and plagiarism implications of extending the conventions of academic writing to accommodate the growing public use of a range of widely available web authoring methods, such as wikis and blogs, social bookmarking, and podcasting. In the web 2.0 world there are many aspects of originality and plagiarism that are neglected or avoided in conversations about academic work. This paper describes a project that seeks to refine academic approaches to web 2.0 authoring, as part of providing an integrated set of originality and plagiarism resources for staff development, and reports initial feedback from independent peer review of these resources. The paper also outlines further evaluation studies and staff development initiatives required to bring systematic improvement to this aspect of academic work.
