What “Gave Birth” To Plagiarism Detectors?
Suggestion # 1. Well, it’s all because of the rapid Internet development, which resulted in accessibility of loads of information sources, isn’t it? Actually, yes! It’s absolutely true. Internet technologies started interfering into our lives long ago. Nowadays hardly anyone can imagine his or her everyday life without this valuable invention of the humanity.
Suggestion # 2. No wonder, that online education is growing in popularity. On the one hand, it allows to develop business within short period of time by attracting more and more online learners without any admission restrictions and save a great deal on human resources, plus other expenses, e.g. premises rent, library, computer facilities, etc. On the other hand, you have to be aware of such thing as plagiarism which may easily spoil your reputation, unless you take control over the quality of the works submitted by a huge number of online students.
Suggestion # 3. Hmm, what about distant and freelance types of work? Do they have anything to do with plagiarism? Certainly, and you probably know why. Due to high speed pace we are to keep up with, most of the work done by distant or freelance employees is difficult to estimate properly. Besides, plagiarism may be hidden as the outcome of partial borrowing of others’ ideas, translation from one language to the other and so on.
Suggestion # 4. Please, watch out! IP law (Intellectual Property law) never stops being amended! And it means that plagiarists’ life is getting tougher and tougher by imposing new restrictions and penalties either administrative or monetary.
