Posting and giving credit in a blog

The topic of referencing is not only relevant in an academic context, but has also been the focus of recent debate and interest from several bloggers who write about and share creative work online. Earlier this year, this discussion led them to create this poster on how to include and credit images in a blog.

The poster was created as a collaboration between Pia Jane Bijkerk, design blogger Erin Loechner, and Yvette van Boven who provided the handmade fonts:

Staff interviews and online survey completed

The project survey has now closed at the end of August after receiving 158 responses from staff across the arts education sector.

The survey included a number of questions about the nature and meaning of the term ‘visual plagiarism’ and the issues that it raises.  One-to-one interviews have also been held with 8 members of teaching and academic support staff across a number of specialist arts universities, to explore the topic of visual plagiarism in more detail.

Thank you to everyone who has very generously spared their time and expertise to assist with this research both through participating in the online survey and by speaking to me by phone, Skype, and in person. The findings of this research will be made available later in 2011/12.
