Plagiarism.org

URL:www.plagiarism.org
  • Excellent articles
  • Nothing significant
If you’re like me, you probably think of plagiarism simply as copying someone else’s work. If you take a look on the very informative Plagiarism.com site, however, you’ll discover more serious sounding definitions, which include the words “theft”, “stealing”, and “using without crediting the source.” In an era of unprecedented access to information, there is also unprecedented opportunities for plagiarism, as any professor who has ever had to sort through term papers knows. Combating the problem with information is this excellent site, which covers the topic from every conceivable angle, including the different types of plagiarism that exist, guides to preventing plagiarism, descriptions of proper ways to cite sources, a description of copyright laws, and much more. Plagiarism.org is a one stop shop for stopping copying and it just might make a difference.
