Can Chinese college EFL students’ recognize blatant and subtle plagiarism?
Issue Date: 
Paper presented at the 4th Redesigning Pedagogy International Conference, Singapore, 30 May to 1 June 2011
In the last two decades, plagiarism in second language writing has attracted much research attention. There has been a heated debate on whether certain cultural practices in non-Western societies encourage plagiarism as defined in Anglo-American academia. In particular, a substantial body of empirical research on this topic has focused on Chinese students studying in Western educational settings and tried to relate their attitudes, beliefs, and behaviors to Chinese cultural influences. However, it can be argued that such students may not be presentative of typical Chinese cultural practices because they have been in contact with different cultures and have lived outside of a Chinese cultural context. Furthermore, many of the existing studies have not distinguished attitude (i.e., stance towards plagiaristic practices) and knowledge (i.e., understanding of what constitutes
plagiaristic practices).
