Abstract:In 2012, Colleen Halupa and Doris Bolliger began a multi-university research project that we never thought would have such positive response. In 2013 we published a research paper on student perceptions of student self-plagiarism using three different universities. In 2015, we published the complementary research study on faculty perceptions of student self-plagiarism at the same three universities. What we found is perception about student self plagiarism were completely different; students felt it was their own work, and faculty considered it recycling. At that time, most universities did not have student self-plagiarism policies. The purpose of this paper is to prepare a literature review that discusses the research findings from our initial study to 2012 to the present on student self-plagiarism and the impact of academic honesty policies that address this issue on this phenomenon. The paper will serve as the basis for a future meta analysis we plan to conduct on student self-plagiarism.
