    The motivation behind plagiarism as a student is work reduction, often in order to maximize fun (hanging out with college friends / gaming / drinking / partying).

    If it’s more difficult to copy and paste someone else’s answers than it is to actually learn the material where you will be evaluated on the output … then plagiarism will end for the most part.

    My proposal would be:

    1. end individual writing assignments where it’s not necessary. Instead create more group projects that have a shared objective. That’s more like real life anyways. Each person gets a role in the project that’s more like pushing something through from end to end (thought to publication). The editor is responsible for validating unique content, otherwise hey share the risk of failing out as well.
    2. Stop passing out the same coursework from year to year.
    3. Do more frequent assessment that relies on the knowledge that supposedly is gained during the process of doing the assignment that would have been plagiarized.
    4. Implement a plagiarize once (and get caught) and fail out policy. Economically, you are increasing the penalty to the point where it’s probably not worth it for any student then.
    5. Implement a whistleblowing plagiarism policy at an institution level where people get paid to be academic whistleblowers on the topic. E.g., if you know someone who is plagiarizing their work and you report it, you get a $1,000 scholarship.

    It's very simple. If it is not common knowledge and if it is taken from a source then you must cite the source in the text AND in the reference list. Remember that it has to be in both. How? There are many styles you can use depending on your preference or the requirements of your course, but you may start with the APA style which is commonly used for the Social Sciences. If you're not sure if you MUST cite the source, then you just cite it just to be SURE not to commit plagiarism. Note that plagiarism, intentional or not, is still a crime. Ignorance is not an excuse. With all these said, I think you have no safer option than cite the source of all the ideas you think are not yours. Better safe than sorry.

    On the off chance that you're in a surge, you may start "creating blind" — that is, you may start working out information using words or articulations that have a place with someone else without recognizing what you are doing. Making outwardly disabled can moreover lead you to pen flawed clarifications. If you are combining your contemplations with another person's considerations, guarantee that it is clear where each idea begins from.
    The best way to deal with refrain from creating blind is to allow your article to rest for quite a while after you finish it. That way, you can examine it again later and differentiate it and your notes, helping you guarantee that your paper is composed adulteration free.

    Nobody knows it all. We all depend and copy others idea; after not everybody is Isaac Newton or Einstein. But that is not the problem, the issue is citation and referencing. First of all, research for papers you want to use. Then copy the idea by paraphrasing and changing the format and words. Do not copy word for word. After that you cite and reference at the end of your papers in references section.
    I recommend Style Writer to serve as guide and improve your writing skills. Slut-it-in is a great software to keep
    plagiarism in check. It gives plagiarism percentage and highlight plagiarized region.

    For me,I guess to avoid plagiarism is to write something from the heart.If you want to say something,just say it in your own words in your own understanding.

    Plagiarism is the copying of someone's work. This makes your work not to be original. Plagiarism is an offence in the writers' world as most writers copyright their work to avoid it being stolen. With a copyright restriction enhanced on one's work, it is simple to monitor work being stolen all around the world and suing the offender.

    Paraphrase - So you have found information that is perfect for your research paper. Read it and put it into your own words. Make sure that you do not copy verbatim more than two words in a row from the text you have found. If you do use more than two words together, you will have to use quotation marks. We will get into quoting properly soon.
    Cite - Citing is one of the effective ways to avoid plagiarism. Follow the document formatting guidelines (i.e. APA, MLA, Chicago, etc.) used by your educational institution or the institution that issued the research request. This usually entails the addition of the author(s) and the date of the publication or similar information. Citing is really that simple. Not citing properly can constitute plagiarism.
    Quoting - When quoting a source, use the quote exactly the way it appears. No one wants to be misquoted. Most institutions of higher learning frown on “block quotes” or quotes of 40 words or more. A scholar should be able to effectively paraphrase most material. This process takes time, but the effort pays off! Quoting must be done correctly to avoid plagiarism allegations.
    Citing Quotes - Citing a quote can be different than citing paraphrased material. This practice usually involves the addition of a page number, or a paragraph number in the case of web content.
    Citing Your Own Material - If some of the material you are using for your research paper was used by you in your current class, a previous one, or anywhere else you must cite yourself. Treat the text the same as you would if someone else wrote it. It may sound odd, but using material you have used before is called self-plagiarism, and it is not acceptable.
    Referencing - One of the most important ways to avoid plagiarism is including a reference page or page of works cited at the end of your research paper. Again, this page must meet the document formatting guidelines used by your educational institution. This information is very specific and includes the author(s), date of publication, title, and source. Follow the directions for this page carefully. You will want to get the references right.

    Bro, just don't copy and paste other peoples work or idea. Trust me you will be fine. If you like the work or idea, give the person who came up with the idea some credit.

    You can avoid plagiarism if you are not copying someone's content. Try to make your own because its more fun and challenging than stoling someone's work. However there is also a way to avoid plagiarism even though you get someone's content. You can put a proper credits.

    The most common issue for writers is plagiarism. Avoiding it is very easy if every you are going to use someones content or post you should first know his or her restrictions about it. Showing respect to the owners is a must in this field, asking for their approval is a sign of respect. Giving the credits is a good manner, it is like you're sharing their thoughts.

    Never just copy paste anything.

    Plagiarism is a big no, in academic writing or any form of writing. Though we cannot deny the fact that sometimes we cannot precisely determine if we had committed plagiarism or not because I believe even if you do it intentional or unintentionally it would always be a form of plagiarism. That is why in order for us to avoid plagiarism and be sued, we should always be careful in doing our writing. make sure that you have paraphrased or revised the sentences or article before posting or writing it. If it is a direct or indirect quote still include the author of the statement. Do not copy the sentences without citing or paraphrasing it. Also understand the content first so that it would be easier for you to rewrite the statement using your own words.

    plagiarism, is an act of stealing there are time when we plagiarize in a way we are not aware of and times where we plagiarize and are fully aware of. plagiarism can be considered as a theft, whether we steal intellectual properties or personal belongings, stealing will always be stealing in any form that is why in order to prevent this act one must learn how to cite the proper authors of the passages or at least include them in the bibliography to acknowledge that the work is their or the idea is theirs and not yous. even in paraphrasing and summarizing citation is always necessary.

    Copying someone else’s work without giving credit is going to end up in disastrous results. You can easily find an article rewriter online and it should help, but there are some other ways you can avoid the issue. Once you understand the necessity of avoiding plagiarism, you stand a better chance at implementing steps to help you stay out of trouble. Here are some of the best tips to help you avoid plagiarism.

    1. Start early
    An easy way to help you avoid plagiarism is to give yourself enough time when writing a paper. It is easy to miss something when you are rushed. Having sufficient time to do your research and pay attention to your content is going to put you miles ahead. When we are under pressure we stand a bigger chance of making unnecessary mistakes.

    2. Cite correctly

    It is one thing to cite your sources, but that won’t mean much if you don’t do it correctly. Make sure you know what the standards are for the paper you are working on and apply it accurately. You might be trying to do the right thing and still get it wrong.

    3. Proofread

    Proofreading is a requirement and it will also help with your plagiarism. You can find the best article rewriter but proofreading your work works. It does not take that much time to scan through your paper and make sure you have cited every source you used. This step is easy to apply and gives results.

    4. Quote

    Another way to give credit is to use quotations when you are directly quoting someone. It really does not take up a lot of time and you want to do it as soon as you write it down. When you quote your references, you won’t be accused of plagiarism.

    5. Paraphrase

    There is a way around using someone else’s work, but you want to still give credit where it’s due. Paraphrasing works well when you reword a sentence without it loosing meaning. You have to write it in your own words and cannot just take out one word and replace it with another.

    6. Add Value

    Do not try to use all information you find in your sources. Try and add some value to the topic by including some of your own insights. This is going to score you better marks anyway. It shows that you understand what you are talking about. You can only do this by researching extensively until you get to a point where all the information clicks.

    7. Plagiarism Checker

    There are a lot of good plagiarism checkers online. I can find the best article rewriter online in a second if I needed to. The same goes for the case to avoid plagiarism. It does not take much to put your work through a checker, just to be sure.

    8. Reference Page

    Another easy way to avoid plagiarism is to include a reference page at the end of your paper. Just add to this list as you do your research and know what you want to include. Do not try to do it when you are done with your paper because it is easy to miss something important.

    9. Ask your Teacher

    Spend some time with your teacher making sure you know the guidelines for the paper you are working on. Sometimes, we can save ourselves so much of time by simply asking. Ask if a reference page or in-text citation is required. This allows you to go into the task prepared.

    10. Internet is a Source

    Just because you found something on the internet and not in a book does not mean you can use the information without citing. Be very careful with this one because it still is someone’s original work. You want to reference or cite the online sources you use in order to avoid plagiarism. Just because you found something on someone’s blog does not mean it’s there for you to use.

    The direct answer is simple to give, do not use directly or indirectly the work, or part of someone else's work, without the permission of the creator and without giving appropriate credit. That is, do not present as new and original an idea, work or product derived from an existing source – like a text, an image, a sound, a drawing, a recipe, an idea, a project, etc.

    In other words, do not steal someone else's work and lying about it afterward.

    This is a basic social rule. But you also have to understand that Intellectual property is protected by copyright laws. Almost all forms of expression fall under copyright protection as long as they are recorded in some way (such as text/books, computer file, technical drawings, etc.).

    This is a serious and increasingly social, technical, economic and political problem. The technology has developed so quickly that some social and legal rules just now are being discussed and adapted. The new generations, accustomed to automatically share any web content on Social Media, do not understand the concept. But it's very simple:

    You are committing plagiarism, when you turn someone else's work as your own; when you copy words or ideas from someone else without giving credit; When you fail to put a quotation in quotation marks; when you give an incorrect information about the source of a quotation; when you change some parts of a work but copying all structure of a source without giving credit; when you copy many words or ideas from a source that it makes up the majority of your work (whether you give credit or not), when you do not have permission to use the original work.

    In most cases you can avoid plagiarism, by simple citing sources. For example, if you use an image from other websites to paste them into your own papers, just indicate the source (author, date and original link).

    You can also use also use “Creative Commons” to your own works.

    Understand the context. Do not copy–paste the text verbatim from the reference paper. Quote. Use quotes to indicate that the text has been taken from another paper. Identify what does and does not need to be cited. Manage your citations. Use plagiarism checkers.

    Plagiarism is the "wrongful appropriation" and "stealing and publication" of another author's "language, thoughts, ideas, or expressions" and the representation of them as one's own original work. It is considered academic dishonesty and a breach of journalistic ethics. It is subject to sanctions such as penalties, suspension, and even expulsion from school or work. Plagiarism is not in itself a crime, but can constitute copyright infringement.

    Avoid Plagiarizing by Citing Sources. If you use the language of your source, you must quote it exactly, enclose it in quotation marks, and cite the source. If you use ideas or information that are not common knowledge, you must cite the source. If you didn't invent it, cite the source.

    The best way to avoid plagiarism is to read and understand the message the writer is trying to point out, in so doing, coming out with your own style might avoid plagiarism, and also try to also cite better and use plagiarism checker tools as well. Very important.!

    To avoid plagiarism we must give citations on the articles online or in books. We must always give credits to the original author of the article. We should always use 3rd person in citing the author using the words, according to, based from etc. We shouldn't copy the article text by text and to always remember to paraphrase but still giving credits to the original author/site/reference.

    For me, I think that the best way to avoid plagiarism is simply 2 think out and then draft your ideas onto paper and make sure it doesn't coincide with others ideas and it is a unique original idea. In order to really do this it takes a lot more work but I no longer and you can feel better about having unique ideas and not plagiarizing anyone else.
