Presentation Description

Non-western students’ enrollment in western countries continue to climb. These students arriving in western countries are often faced with different cultures, languages, customs, religious and the challenges of new academic expectations and requirements, particularly in the research process. Some of the teachings and ideas that they bring relating to text usage and borrowing contradicts western ones and often causes them to get cited for plagiarism. Collaborative efforts, outreach programs, and special classes can alleviate unintentional plagiarism among non-western students attending western universities.
