Carol Haviland, Joan Mullin, and their collaborators report on
a three-year interdisciplinary interview project on the subject of
plagiarism, authorship, and "property," and how these are conceived
across different fields. The study investigated seven different
academic fields to discover disciplinary conceptions of what types
of scholarly production count as "owned."
Less a research report than a conversation, the book offers a wide
range of ideas, and the chapters here will provoke discussion on
scholarly practice relating to intellectual property, plagiarism,
and authorship---and to how these matters are conveyed to students.
Although these authors find a good deal of consensus in regard to
the ethical issues of plagiarism, they document a surprising
variety of practice on the subject of what ownership looks like
from one discipline to another. And they discover that students are
not often instructed in the conventions of their major field.
