Contract Cheating

One of the main reasons for setting up has been to provide a single site that provides access to information about this important research area.

As such, this will always be a work in progress, as there is already a substantial body of research material out there.

Not only does this include traditional research papers, but also talks and media articles (this is an area that often ends up back in the news). In addition, there are more general publications related to student plagiarism which overlap with the contract cheating area, or which refer to this by another name.

The intention of the site is to keep this as up-to-date as possible when new material appears. Where time allows, some of the most important historical sources will also be included. This is very much just a labour of love.

And, of course, a number of ideas are the opinion of the authors.

Many of the posts offer the opportunity to leave comments and so we hope that there will be some aspects of community on the site. You can also feel free to contact us.

We hope that you find useful.
