Plagiarism and the Johann Hari case

Plagiarism is back in the spotlight following the Johann Hari scandal. In his journalism for The Independent and elsewhere, he didn't follow the simple rule of acknowledging his sources, he quoted from other people's writing, and he tried to cover up his traces. So we've added new guidance notes to our tutorial on Plagiarism and how to avoid it. And if you want a short online elearning course on the subject, we've got one here. And if that isn't enough we've also created a tutorial on Self-Plagiarism and how to understand it.
