Week 3

Plagiarism

Defination of plagiarism

Plagiarism is the “use or close imitation of the language and thoughts of another author and the representation of them as one’s own original work.

Plagiarisme are divide into several categories :

  • Academia

Many students feel pressured to complete papers well and quickly, and with the accessibility of new technology (the Internet) students can plagiarize by copying and pasting information from other sources.

  • Journalism

Since journalism’s main currency is public trust, a reporter’s failure to honestly acknowledge their sources undercuts a newspaper or television news show’s integrity and undermines its credibility.

  • Online plagiarism

Content scraping is a phenomenon of copy and pasting material from Internet websites, affecting both established sites and blogs.

  • Self-plagiarism

Self-plagiarism is the reuse of significant, identical, or nearly identical portions of one’s own work without acknowledging that one is doing so or without citing the original work.

  • As a Practical Issue

In addition to legal and ethical concerns, plagiarism is frequently also a practical issue, in that it is frequently useful to consult the sources used by an author, and plagiarism makes this more difficult.

  • Plagiarism detection

Plagiarism detection is the process of locating instances of plagiarism within a work or document

  • Music plagiarism

Music plagiarism  is the use or close imitation of another author’s music while representing it as one’s own original work.
