Summary or Abstract of the Project:

Dr. Angelina Weenie, Associate Professor, and
Dr. Kathleen O’Reilly, Associate Professor, are part of a
research team that has been awarded the SSHRC
Partnership October 2020 Grant for the Partnership on
University Plagiarism (PUPP) valued at $2.5 Million. The
PUPP consists of a team of 32 partners, made up of eight
collaborators and 49 researchers from 28 universities
and four associations in Canada, the United States, and
Europe.
The objective of the PUPP is to put together the first
international initiative for preventing plagiarism in
universities in order to establish a culture of
integrity. This innovative research project focuses on digital scrapbooking strategies (DSS) used for writing university assignments by students and professors from different countries, cultures, and speaking different languages
with a view to determining how effective teaching of
these strategies can encourage behaviours demonstrating greater integrity.
Centered on preventing plagiarism, a critical issue at
the heart of learning by university students, the work
of the PUPP will allow Canada to create an international
reputation as a leader in developing a culture of academic integrity in the digital setting of the university.
