I teach science writing  at the undergraduate and graduate level, and lately I have seen a lot of plagiarized papers from my students. I use turnitin to detect it, but would love it if people could share strategies, resources etc. that I could use with my students.

Assign them practical topics which cannot be copy-pasted. Deduction of markes if found plagiarized could be a good idea.

Hi Alex,

I like Michel Roig's Plagiarism or Paraphrasing exercise:

I've tested it on journal editors who found it quite challenging!

Also, I stumbled upon this infographic recently(attached) - what do you think? a good summary, or are the classifications of different levels of plagarism quite silly?

I wrote a post for the AuthorAID blog this month with advice on avoiding plagiarism:

Thanks Andy for the link.  I am going to try to use it with my trainee teachers for Research Methodology courses.

As far as the infographics is concerned, I will try to simplify it to use it in my courses.
