It’s a widespread view that plagiarism is increasing in incidence amongst students. It is observed that internet is one of the main sources behind the perceived increase in the prevalence of plagiarism. Text can be easily copied from sources like websites, e-books, e-journals articles, online essays which are sold commercially and various other sources which could be easily pasted too.
There are various difficulties that can come up with plagiarism as an important issue with plagiarism in higher education:
* Universities can differ in the meaning of plagiarism
* They can also differ in their response to it when it is highlighted.
* Universities could also vary in terms of both the type and severity of punishment.
The most significant concern from student’s view is that plagiarism should be avoided at al cost as the punishment could be severe, irrespective of the student’s own view on the matter. Student should not lift large material without making it clear that are a part of quotations which can make clear that the text in question is not his own work but the scholar is making a point by quoting someone else. Therefore, try to express your ideas in your own words with proper acknowledgement.
