From the ten questions tagged cheating, nine are about students cheating at courseworks, exams and similar and oneone is about diploma mill (and thus mistagged anyway in my opinion, as using diploma mills serves rather to deceive outside of academia).

The questions tagged fraud on the other hand are all about academic misconduct at the “research level”.

I would thus suggest to keep unchanged and edit the tag wikis to reflect the following categorisation paradigm (maybe renaming ):

  • and classify the level at which misconduct happens. The former is about exams, coursework and similar; the latter is about publications, research and similar.
  • classifies a certain type of misconduct, which can happen at both levels. Other types would be faked data, etc., which do not seem to deserve their own tag yet.
