Do not plagiarise

Plagiarism is truly a dishonest practice. When one plagiarises from another person, one does not only steal or copy original thoughts and ideas but one also commits the crime of not giving due credit to the original author. It is not tolerated in the least in the field of academics. Because of its dishonest, wrong and corrupt nature it leads to some very serious consequences for those who indulge in it. This is why we should try to refrain from plagiarising. For those who are still not convinced, here are a few reasons why they should stop from indulging in plagiarising time and again that can also be found on the Theplagiarism.com.

The first reason is because the professors are also smart and experienced in these matters. Students not only judge themselves too high but they also judge the professors too poorly. They think that the professors will not be able to tell if they have plagiarised or not. They are extremely wrong when they think this way. Professors are highly experienced when it comes to telling whether the paper is plagiarised or not. There are many signs that can tell them so. One, the language in the paper might be too complex as compared to the language that student’s normally use. Second, the writing style could be very different. This could either be in terms of the writing style of the student from earlier term papers or it could just be in terms of the general writing style used at the student level. Still another reason could be because two people submit almost the same paper. Though this reason is rare, it has still been seen on many occasions. Because many students may have done plagiarism from the same popular websites, there could be a lot of similarity in their papers considering that they have used the same matter.

The second reason is that professors absolutely detest plagiarisers. As mentioned before, this practice is absolutely hated in the world of academics, because of which it has very serious consequences. Professors do not like people who plagiarise because these people indirectly are insulting the intelligence of their professors and not to mention, making a mockery of the whole education system. The third reason is that professors also know how to use the web. When most students indulge in plagiarism, they assume that their professors know nothing. This is an extremely wrong assumption. Professors today are totally familiar with using the web including knowing the names of the more popular websites and also know about using software that prevents students from plagiarising. The fourth reason is that cheating takes effort and is also very expensive. On one hand a copied paper needs to be heavily modified to change the language which requires a lot of effort. On the other hand, buying a paper online also proves very expensive.

But the last reason is the reason why one shouldn’t indulge in plagiarism. Finally it boils down to the person. All of us should know better and should realise that we should never ever commit the crime of plagiarising.
