  • Peng Xiantang


New forms of academic misconduct have emerged in the era of big data,that is, the method of plagiarism has changed from "obvious plagiarism" to "concealed plagiarism", the mean of infringement has changed from "copy and distribution" to "network communication". Academic misconduct is too hidden to be discovered. In the face of the new situation, not only are the administrative and civil laws and regulations hard to curb academic misconduct, the traditional criminal law has also encountered judicial dilemmas. In the context of big data, the criminal law must change the idea of protection and improve the crime regulations in order to respond to the spread of academic misconduct and strengthen the comprehensiveness of criminal law protection.
