Plagiarism has been an issue for every student for centuries and has existed at all times. However, not always plagiarism can be attributed to academic dishonesty. First of all, this is because many relevant works have been written on some topics. Therefore, it is difficult to avoid plagiarism, even if the student writes the text in his own words. Additionally, some programs do not distinguish between plagiarism and borrowing and paraphrasing, which leads to certain problems (Bailey & Trudy, 2018). Moreover, when defining plagiarism, the context in which borrowing is defined is of great importance. The student can take references from foreign literature or from sources on which copyright is not determined. Thus, every person should know how to avoid plagiarism and defend their copyrights.
An important point is that a student may plagiarize unintentionally due to inattention. This phenomenon is quite common among students who are very tired or do not have time to complete all the work on time. Most often, plagiarism by negligence can be traced among those who combine study and work. Thus, in such a case, plagiarism is a forgivable mistake and cannot be judged harshly.
Another issue is students’ knowledge of the amount of plagiarism and copyright enforcement. The student may not use any part of the source without quoting, which includes direct or indirect references. Moreover, the sources must be formatted properly following the given citation format. Additionally, every student should be aware of the amount of plagiarism and copyright compliance. People may not use any part of the source without quoting, which includes direct or indirect references. Moreover, the sources must be formatted properly following the given citation format.
