Lecture 5 plagiarism knowledge


Published on

Plagiarism is the 'original killer'. Unfortunately, most students do not value thoroughly their work and opt for the 'ccp syndrome' (copy, cut & paste).
Most often, lecturers look for the 'reference sources' at the very beginning of an assignment paper since that indicates how serious and well read the student is. It is true that, good professional papers take more time to present. Howeer, though the Internet has more easily introduced the 'comfort concept' more easily, yet, a diligent student will opt for more serious and professional work.
