The aim of this paper is to present the early findings of a PhD study which examines student perceptions of different forms of plagiarism. This study is framed by a longitudinal research design which considers student perspectives of plagiarism across discipline areas (STEM and the ‘Social Sciences’). This paper will present evidence from the early stages of a large-scale quantitative and qualitative study; the full study follows students as they progress from first to final year on a UK undergraduate degree programme. This paper presents the findings of the first year student perspectives.
