Copiers' cure

6th February 2004 at 00:00
I was delighted to read an account of my workshop at the recent Association for Science Education meeting (TES, January 16). Since the subject of the meeting was tackling plagiarism, I do, however, feel honour-bound to point out that none of the attributed initiatives is original to me. Our novel contribution has been rather more in the area of plagiarism prevention than plagiarism identification. Readers may like to see a copy of our exercise (published in the Journal of Biology Education) at www.le. teachingteachingpdf willmott.pdf
