Plagiarism is an issue at all levels of education, especially in universities. The frequency of plagiarism has increased over the past 10 years. The widespread use of the Internet makes using information without crediting the source even easier. Plagiarism is also an issue that has become increasingly of concern in our society.
Eldrige Cleaver, former Black Panther and current minister, has been quoted as saying, “You’re either part of the solution or part of the problem.” We are part of the problem if we teach and evaluate our students in ways that enable plagiarism to flourish. If we do not emphasize professional ways of citing information, if we do not make ourselves aware of the tell-tale signs of plagiarism, and if we do not provide the logical consequences of academic dishonesty, then we are part of the problem. By involving students in an honor system, by being forthright about our academic values and standards, by being knowledgeable about the types of plagiarism, and by knowing ways for detecting and preventing it, we are part of the solution.
