Since increasing numbers of our faculty were requesting SafeAssign (available to UMass faculty through the Blackboard learning management system), I decided I needed to try it out in my own teaching, find out how others were using it, and discover what research had been done into the accuracy of anti-plagiarism software
The Plagiarism Advisory Service, serving Britain's universities and colleges and based at the University of Northumbria, now has anti-plagiarism software
that can be used to identify when opinions have been lifted.
For the upcoming semester, the History Department at Royal Holloway is asking for the electronic submission of work so anti-plagiarism software
can be used for the first time.
