JISCPAS welcomes Google decision on essay writing services
The JISC Plagiarism Advisory Service has welcomed the announcement by Google to ban advertisements by essay writing services, saying its decision was an 'important' and a 'responsible' one. Will Murray, JISCPAS Service Director said: 'This is an important decision for national and institutional attempts to support academic integrity in the UK. We welcome this move and hope that along with other measures being taken across the sector it will send a further signal that cheat sites and essay writing services which encourage students to pass the work of others off as their own have no place in education and nothing to offer students.'
