Abstract: First paragraph: Following Roz Ivanič’s influential work on writing and identity, this chapter explores the effects of information technology in the writing of research and on the identity of the researcher. In particular, it suggests that the facility to copy, cut and paste is undermining the notion that research texts making original contributions to knowledge. By contrast, this capacity to copy, cut and paste is providing opportunities for the plagiarising of the self, bringing forth different possibilities for research and the identities of researchers. Here simulation rather than representation becomes crucial to understanding research practices.
