hello friends, i just put some cases of plagiarism which was done by students over the world and their results and some tipful sites which sugggest us how to avoid plagiarism A Campus Fad That's Being Copied A recent study of 23 institutions across the U.S. has found that more and more students are plagiarizing from Internet sources. Rutgers University management professor, Donald L. McCabe, organized the survey that included large public universities and small private colleges. Thirty-eight percent of undergraduates stated that they participated in some form of Internet plagiarism in the past year, and almost half of the students did not consider this activity to be cheating. On September 3, 2003 article from The New York Times outlines the survey's results and discusses steps being taken to prevent and discourage future academic integrity violations of this nature. Ref: Canada's Simon Fraser U. Suspends 44 Students in Plagiarism Scandal Forty-four students at Simon Fraser University in British Columbia who were involved in a plagiarism "scheme" were suspended after nearly a year long investigation into allegations of academic dishonesty. Students at the University who purchased custom designed projects for an economics assignment were also uncovered during the investigation and received failing grades for the course. Ref: British Student Says University was Negligent for Not Stopping His Plagiarism Michael Gunn, an English major at a British university, admits that he plagiarized throughout his academic career. In a few weeks, Gunn is scheduled to complete his degree, but the university is threatening to rescind his grades and withhold his diploma. Gunn states that he did not know that his "cut and paste" techniques were a problem, and he is suing the university for negligence. The university's response and additional information about this situation can be found in a Chronicle of Higher Education article published on June 4, 2004 Ref: Now about plagiriasm and how to avoid it , Plagiarism Avoided is a University of British Columbia site on how to avoid plagiarism that is based on the original booklet Plagiarism: What It Is and How to Avoid It by Colin Gordon, Peter Simmons, and Graeme Wynn. Topics covered on this site include a discussion on what is plagiarism, tips on avoiding plagiarism and other examples Ref : my friends its easy to know about plagirism and how to avoid it all information given in this ref site: hope it'll be helpful to u all..

Hello krunal, Yea what the student Micheal Gunn said is true. It is the university's fault for considering his plagiarized assignments everytime. Threatening to withhold his diploma, i think its not the valid verdict. Until now i thought the awareness of Plagiarism is more in Western countries than the East. But shockingly with your statistics, I need to change my opinion. Great blog from your side.
