What is Plagiarism?

Many people think of plagiarism as copying another's work, or borrowing someone else's original ideas. But terms like "copying" and "borrowing" can disguise the seriousness of the offense:

According to the Merriam-Webster Online Dictionary, to "plagiarize" means

  • to steal and pass off (the ideas or words of another) as one's own
  • to use (another's production) without crediting the source
  • to commit literary theft
  • to present as new and original an idea or product derived from an existing source.

In other words, plagiarism is an act of fraud. It involves both stealing someone else's work and lying about it afterward.

How to Find Plagiarism?

Urkund is the leading system for checking for plagiarism. It is being used in universities and colleges all over Europe. The system is web-based. It checks documents against three central sources — the Internet; published materials; and the Urkund archive with materials previously submitted by students (such as memos, case studies and degree work (theses/dissertations)). The system was developed in 2000 as a collaboration with Pedagogiska Institutionen (Department of Education) at Uppsala University in Sweden. Urkund offers a comprehensive approach to the cheating problem by offering training, focus days, and an anti-plagiarism guide and support for both teachers and students.
