Education department moves to prosecute essay mills

By Carl O’Brien for The Irish Times – in University World News.

The Department of Education and Skills is planning to introduce laws to prosecute ‘essay mill’ companies who offer to write students’ assignments in exchange for money.

The move is a response to mounting concern over the practice which allows students to circumvent their college’s plagiarism detection systems. The use of these services is not easily detected as software used by universities only detects where students have copied from previously published academic texts.
