Review quote

"Georgetown's entering class will discover that we actually have given them what we expect will be a very useful book, Doing Honest Work in College. It will be one of the first things students see on their residence hall desks when they move in, and we hope they will realize how important the topic is." - James J. O'Donnell, Provost, Georgetown University "A useful book to keep on your reference shelf." - Bonita L. Wilcox, English Leadership Quarterly "In 2005 we ordered copies of Doing Honest Work in College for our entire incoming class. The experience for McGill has been so positive that we are repeating it again for next year.... I have found this past term that the number of plagiarism cases has decreased dramatically from the same period last year. In addition to giving students the information needed to avoid plagiarism, the distribution of the book has raised awareness of the importance of academic integrity." - Enrica Quaroni, Disciplinary Officer for the Faculty of Arts, McGill University"
