The new JISC Plagiarism Advisory Service website is now live.
“Regular users will find all of their old favourites there as well as some exciting new content, such as the video briefings on detection software, the role of academic misconduct officers and an FE perspective on plagiarism. More video content, from the 2006 conference in June, will be added in the coming months to build up what will be, we are sure, an extremely valuable resource for the community. “
