Oracle Tips by Burleson
Chapter 6 -
Fortunately, it is just as easy for someone to
detect plagiarism as it is to copy it off other people’s web pages.
There are many websites which aid in detecting plagiarism.
Amazon – The Amazon “search inside the book”
feature has resulted in dozens of lawsuits for plagiarism as
unscrupulous authors were caught within days of the introduction of
Google – The Google search engine is used by
almost all College professors today and the new Google Print
facility is now indexing thousands of books into the Google engine.
Turnitin.com – This wonderful website is
available to academics everywhere and provides instant web content
matching for papers and College essays. (www.turnitin.com)
Now that the web has given users tools with
which to detect the plagiarist, the threat of getting caught has
acted as a deterrent. However, the punishments for the plagiarist
can run the gamut from a slap-on-the hand to criminal prosecution.
A Question of Honor
The punishments for plagiarists are the most
severe at schools that employ and enforce the Honor Code such as the
U.S. military academies.
“We will not Lie, Cheat, Steal, nor Tolerate
Among us those Who Do.”
