Avoiding Plagiarism

Posted on: 10/18/2010

As I am currently in my 15th year of school (ew!), I have heard year after year from teachers to not plagiarize. Obviously I understand that plagiarizing is serious and definitely unethical, whether you’re a student or professional, but the internet has definitely made it seem not as serious of an issue as it is. There have been many times when I get online there are advertisements for websites to purchase term papers, etc; and in recent years I have even known people who have had to go before judicial affairs at their universities for plagiarizing (intentional or not). I found a video on youtube from the University of Illinois that tells students what plagiarism is and how to avoid it.
