Most College Students Don’t Think Twice Before Plagiarizing From The Web
Is it okay to copy-paste from any online resource without attributing? Many students seem to think so.
New York Times reports on a disturbing trend among college students who are simply unmindful or intentionally involved in plagiarism when it comes to using resources from the web. Several surveys conducted have proved that many students do not cite the author or credit the source when copying from a site, even believing its not “serious cheating”. The Times adds that the Internet may be changing the way how students understand the concept of authorship on the web.
