  • Ignorance: Countries have different regulations regarding the ownership of ideas. Some cultures encourage students to borrow freely from sources because it’s a form of respect or flattery to copy the expert.Also, students often don’t know how to cite properly (how to paraphrase, and when and how to include attribution).This is why a statement on plagiarism and academic honesty should be placed in the syllabus and discussed in class. Instructional resources for learning to cite properly should also be provided.Laziness: Students may feel that better work or better arguments have already been written on this topic, so why re-create the work? It’s much easier to paraphrase the whole paper. Also, they may have forgotten to include the author and pages in their notes, or they may think that they had paraphrased a certain section when, in fact, they had directly quoted the author.Time Management: Some of this may be intentional procrastination, but some may simply be due to the fact that the student did not think the research for the assignment would take that long. This is where an assignment delivered in a sequential manner would be helpful.Lack of Confidence: Students may doubt their ability to synthesize information and to express their own critical analysis. In this case, they should be encouraged to express their own ideas, and that you don’t expect them to be as brilliant as the experts.Lack of Research Skills: Students may have too broad or too narrow of a topic to start with. They also may not know how to use the library resources to effectively find information on their topic. This can be addressed by either showing the class how to access the resources and search for information yourself, or with the help of a librarian, or by encouraging the students to meet with their liaison librarian for research assistance. That’s why we’re here!
