A comprehensive guide to the handling of cases of academic misconduct. Crisis on Campus presents an overview of the phenomenon and handling of academic misconduct. After a brief historical background, it discusses contemporary circumstances that affect the nature and frequency of academic misconduct. It then details the phases of misconduct discovery and investigation: detection, analysis, assessment, reporting, and institutional handling. The final chapter deals with prevention. The book focuses on concrete cases, showing the complexities and ambiguities in dealing with presumed academic misconduct. The book also provides practical advice to both whistle-blowers and those accused of academic misconduct. The book pays special attention to plagiarism as one of the most frequent but also most complex forms of academic misconduct. It analyzes the various degrees of possible plagiarism, detection techniques, challenges in proving plagiarism, and denial tactics. It gives valuable advice on how to report and handle cases of alleged plagiarism, both by students and by professionals.


Decoo's painstaking study of the doctoral dissertation case makes an excellent contribution to thinking about academic misconduct. This case study provides not only a detailed test bed for hard questions raised later in the book, but a rich tool for pedagogy. --Helen Nissenbaum, Department of Culture and Communication, New York University This bold and timely contribution to research and scholarship will assist the research community, especially doctoral students, in avoiding the pitfalls of unethical research designed to expedite results. The book appears in a context in which the commercial sector pressures a few scholars to release to medical journals papers with dubious research methodology and reported outcomes. The creation of a software tool capable of analyzing such abuses is particularly welcome, and Colpaert and Decoo should be commended for this. --Philippe Delcloque, Senior Enterprise Academic, Manchester Science Enterprise Centre, University of Manchester Institute of Science and Technology (UMIST)Please note: Endorser gives permission to excerpt from quote. Decoo charges right into academic misconduct of all kinds, not just FFP (fabrication, falsification, plagiarism). His criticisms rattle the very foundations of the academic reward system. --Frank L. Borchardt, Professor, Duke University Decoo presents a problem that many colleagues involved in academic assessment aren't yet aware of. The generalized use of the Internet and the increasing efficiency of search engines have considerably increased the possibility that students will copy and paste Web publications and present the results as their own original work. Decoo demonstrates that the borderline between acceptable and unacceptable use of other people's work is not always clear and that there is a growing need for an academic code of conduct on this issue. This book is particularly interesting because it discusses not only possible solutions for the detection of plagiarism but also measures that can help prevent this kind of academic misconduct. --Jos Dumortier, Interdisciplinary Centre for Law and Information Technology, University of LeuvenPlease note: Endorser gives permission to excerpt from quote.
