Advice and insights from plagiarism and fabrication summit

The first session at today’s National Summit on Plagiarism and Fabrication shared some of the findings and recommendations contained in the new, free ebook, “Telling the Truth and Nothing But.” (More on the book and summit in my previous post.)

This morning some of the book’s contributors offered data about the prevalence of plagiarism, made suggestions for preventing and responding to incidents and offered guidance on how to discipline people caught stealing words.

Below, the best tips and advice, collected in tweet form.
