Deters students from committing plagiarism


Much has been written about Academic Integrity and the importance of honesty in the academic setting. Educating students what plagiarism is, and how to cite their sources correctly and thereby avoid accidental plagiarism is a key step in the process.


However, intentional plagiarism is also a serious problem in the academic setting. There may be multiple reasons why this happens 


  • Students overworked
  • Foreign students with inadequate language skills for university level courses
  • Pressure for high grades
  • Opportunity


The bottom line is: 

For intentional plagiarism, detection and punishment may be the only viable solution.
