  • According to the Merriam-Webster Online Dictionary, to "plagiarize" means to steal and pass off (the ideas or words of another) as one's own to use (another's production) without crediting the source to commit literary theft to present as new and original an idea or product derived from an existing source.
  • Between £24 and £36 per page. Rubbish. Plagiarism. No excuse could be possible. Expelled.
  • 1. Today's students learn quickly that finding and manipulating data on the Internet is a valuable skill. The real skills they need to learn are interpretation and analysis -- how to process the information you find. Anyone with some basic knowledge can find information on the internet -- it's what you do with that information that is important. 2. Some students might think, "Why sweat over producing an analysis that has already been done better, by someone who knows more?" Students may also be intimidated by the quality of work found online, thinking their own work cannot compare. Writing is a learning process, and that we do not expect student to be as brilliant as experts who have devoted years to the subject. 3. Students often justify plagiarism by pointing out that since their peers plagiarize, they must do the same to keep up. They feel faced with a choice: put in several hours of work and risk a mediocre grade with less time for other subjects, or do what their peers do and copy something good from the internet for an easy A with time to spare. 4. Poor Planning Students are not always the best judges of how much time their assignments will take. They may simply be overwhelmed by the task and put it off until the last minute, leaving them with no time for original work.
  • No honest student would walk out of a neighbors' house accidentally carrying their television. But even the most well-intentioned writers sometimes "appropriate" the work of others without proper authority. How does this happen? Perhaps the most common reason for inadvertent plagiarism is simply an ignorance of the proper forms of citation It is important o keep careful track of references during the note-taking stage. Because the internet makes information so readily available, you may find it difficult to tell the difference between "common knowledge" they are free to use, and original ideas which are the intellectual property of others. The easiest thing to do is the maxim "When in doubt, cite sources." Not all cultures take the same view of plagiarism. The Western notion that "ideas" can be the property of individuals may actually seem absurd to those with different views on what constitutes shared information or public discourse.
  • These are the reasons why ALL UK Universities and colleges take it so seriously. The first two are ‘Academic’ reasons. The second two are wider than that – of public interest. These are why we have regulations, which you will have signed up to, to work against it being done.
  • Turn it in? What’s that? BALANCE OF PROBABLILITY! Not legal proof that we need.
  • What should we do? IN PROVEN CASES in cases where it is agreed that a student unknowingly committed an offence, issue a written reprimand or warning as to future conduct. A note will be retained in the student’s record.
  • This is called an originality report.
  • Turnitin will not only be compared against live internet pages, but also against academic and professional content not available on the public internet, including millions of commercial pages from books, newspapers and journals.
  • Apology for hard message.
