Plagiarism, a word that represents the act of copying someone else’s work and pretending that piece of work or idea is your own. This means that you are taking all the credit for all of the effort that the original writer put into that work you just duplicated. Copying someone else’s work and taking all of the credit for it will not get you anywhere. It will not give you the satisfaction of saying that the original idea was something that you thought of. Instead it will make you worried about being discovered of plagiarizing someone else’s work and taking all of the credit for it. All that worry can land you in some trouble like failing the class, being expelled, and losing your job. It’s not worth it to copy someone another individual’s work
Why do people do it? Why take credit for someone else work when you can easily have your own? Everyone is born with a mind of their own. Just because it may have come from a book or the internet don’t think someone wouldn’t notice. I just have one question. Is it worth plagiarizing taken someone else's work and getting caught having to suffer the consequences?
It is never ok for any student to get another person’s work, and just put their name on it and turn it in. First of all, if you want to be successful in life you need to learn to get through problems and situations on your own. If you are that person that is always finding a shortcut around the work, then you are most likely going to be a failure in the real word. This is such a serious matter that you can literally be expelled for this action. Therefore, no matter what the circumstances plagiarism is never an option.
I do consider plagiarism inherently wrong because it is ethically and fundamentally sinful to steal the work or ideas of another person. Moreover, a person who engages in plagiarism is being academically dishonest (Ariail, Cavico, & Vasa-Sideris, 2015). According to Ariail, et al. (2015) plagiarism is a form of cheating and a grave academic offence. And I could not agree more. Although there is a difference between blatantly plagiarizing and making an honest mistake, it does not change the fact that the full responsibility, for the plagiarized material, falls on the shoulders of the writer. Therefore, it is crucial for a student or writer to proofread and double-check his or her work without ceasing before submitting it. However, I do believe
At the Academy of our Lady, plagiarism is considered a disrespectful act of stealing someone else’s work for your own benefit. Students often plagiarize by copying someone’s homework, looking off another’s test, or making someone do all the work in a group assignment. Sister Michelle states, “A student went into a teacher’s room and took a picture of the test. The student compounded the bad choices by putting the picture of the test in a group text” (Davis). When caught for plagiarism, as those students were, punishment includes getting a zero, calling parents, or getting parents involved depending on how serious the plagiarism is (Davis). No matter the reason, plagiarism is wrong and teachers at the academy will find out and give you the discipline
I believe that plagiarizing should be taken very seriously. It’s unfair for people to steal another’s work. I believe that if a student is caught plagiarizing they should be given a chance to explain themselves, sometimes it could be that they turned in the wrong paper. If they are found guilty of plagiarizing I think it’s best that they are given a zero for that assignment and should not be allowed to make it
Since I could remember my professors have taught me that copying, someone else’s work is cheating and it is not the right thing to do, it is called plagiarism. According to my professors, plagiarizing is wrong and can even be against the law since you are taking somebody else’s work and claiming it is yours. I have had classmates who have failed courses due to them copying someone else work or ideas. As I read these articles, it was surprising to hear artist points of views in regards to copying someone else’s ideas/works. Being original and coming up with your own ideas has always been emphasized in school.
Life teaches people, and who does not learn from life’s lessons? To write an academic essay for a university assignment and then get labeled by “plagiarist” for an act of plagiarism is a lesson that one should bear in mind. Plagiarism is actually one of the most popular violations of Academic Integrity at several universities world-wide. When searching for the phrase “Academic Integrity” a bunch of university codes and conducts will pop up listing their rules that should not be violated under any circumstances, but first, let us define Integrity. According to Cambridge Learner’s dictionary, integrity is “honesty and the ability to do or know what is morally right”, adding the qualifier academic narrows down the definition and restricts it to
Plagiarism is both biblically and ethically wrong and should be published accordingly. Romans 13:7 says to give honor to whom honor is due especially since the published author had worked diligently to produce high-quality work. Academically and professionally, a recognized work has credibility and is often a result of several years of studying and research. A person who plagiarizes the author’s publication is similar to a person who robs a man after an honest day’s work. Using proper citation helps to build credibility in the student’s work as well as provide a solid foundation that can be built upon. Adapting the mentality of plagiarism being biblically and ethically wrong helps writers increase their writing and research standards which
It is surprising how facile plagiarism can be done. In addition, I did not know how colossal of a deal plagiarism is and how often it happens is. According to Education Week, their survey showed that fifty-four percent of students take information from the internet, without giving credit to the original writer and use it for their own class assignments (Hinders,8). Plagiarism is a crime that many people commit for several reasons and comes with consequences.
What is one major thing that can ruin your education? Plagiarism should never be the easy way out; it is the wrong way out. Plagiarism is a violation in academia. It is legal. A copyright violation falls on a copyright holder and is illegal. It can lead to being sued or even placed in federal prison. Plagiarism is more of an offence against the author while copyright is an offence against the copyright holder. (The difference) Plagiarism, copyright, trademark and patents can affect people if done anywhere from kindergarten through twelfth grade, college, and the work place. In addition, plagiarism, copyright, trademark and patents can ruin lives.
Compared to a hundred years ago, many teenagers were not drinking alcohol or doing reckless acts. Young people were definitely not getting as many tattoos or piercings back then either. Many people in our society have weaker or less stronger moral values. People are more likely to cheat or lie. Students turn in plagiarized assignments and projects found off of the Internet. Plagiarism is bad because students will become dependent and have low moral values.
Plagiarism, what it is and how it is avoided are serious questions for all students, especially in a high school English class. Plagiarism may be as simple as a quick copy and paste,nevertheless, there is no denying that it’s not worth it. The University of Minnesota says the following on plagiarism, “Data is meaningless without thoughtful interpretation. This is the basis of education, and is one of the ways new knowledge is developed. Since students are individuals, and since no two students look at the same data or interpret that data exactly the same way, each interpretation is original”(Selzler). Plagiarism is illegal as the expression of original ideas is considered intellectual property and is protected by copyright laws, and are equal to original inventions. Almost all forms of expression fall under copyright protection as long as they are recorded in any way (Plagiarism.org). Although plagiarism has been a problem for ages, it is critical that students
All we ever knew is laws and rules, growing up we obeyed our parents rules, teachers, school, work, our state laws. Laws and rules is something our life revolves around, we were raised to follow it or else there would be consequences for us to face, whether it be a small one or big. But there are rules that seem quite ridiculous and outraging--this is where our morals come into action, we start to question it, does it seem fair? Just because something is legal it does not make it right, we know if something is ethical or not. Lying is legal but it's unethical, we live in a world where it's illegal to pierce a minor's ear without the parents consent but it's legal to get an abortion without the parents permission or consent. Being legal
Plagiarism is the process of taking some one else work or ideas and showing it as their own works (Oxford Dictionaries). The purpose of this study is to understand 6 different ethical reasons used by student to overcome with plagiarism and with help of these ethical reason, faculties can bring a solution to stop or prevent plagiarism. Where as unethical behavior can also lead to worries in school or colleges, so there is need to correct it so that it has positive impact on organizational ethics. Although, after reading this journal article, it was clearly seen that mostly used ethical reasons are Deontology, Situational Ethics and Machiavellianism to overcome with the problem of Plagiarism (Ashworth and Bannister, 1997).
