Plagiarism Technology and Ghostwriting: Can we make the undetectable detectable? (PP126), Paper
This presentation looks into ghostwriting and authoring as undetectable practices among EFL/ESL students within academia.There has been a number of plagiarism detection software developed, ghostwriting, however, has increasingly become a prevalent phenomenon. Our paper argues for alternative multidimensional approaches for fighting and curbing ghostwriting, an undetectable form of plagiarism, and contract cheating. The presentation will offer some practical and multidimensional approaches regarding how to deal with plagiarism incidents which result from ghostwriting practices.
