Plagiarism is very common in the world which isbasically a crime that can put the career of anybody on stake or destroyed itcompletely.
It is mostly adopted at the higher dignitary levels, especially inPakistan. Most of the MSC, Mphil and PhD students have not earned their degreesby their own efforts rather by fake information and data that is basicallystolen. plagiarism considers as a biggest crime and also highlights that in Pakistanthere is no check and balance for this crime. Plagiarism can be defined as anAcademic offence which means to present someone’s intellectual property andtheir work without any reference as your own intellectual property.There are guidelines for plagiarism. Internationallythese guidelines are followed, but in Pakistan no such guidelines have everfollowed and one of the reasons wasthe unavailability of the software of plagiarism index, similarity index andrepository which results in no check and balance of past intellectual records.We have come so far and living in a world of technologies but still there is nosoftware available to track Urdu material neither we have any repository forUrdu material. However, we do have repository available to access Englishwritten material.
Plagiarism can take many forms. Students copy theirassignments and rephrase a reports and so much of a material rather thancopying the actual words used. Students should not waste their time andthinking ability in copy pasting even students made their thesis byprofessional writer and they paid for that. Even somehow it is injustice tosome students who read several books and sit in front of their computers wholenight to complete their assignments while others student already decided todownload the answer from the internet.
One makes and represents their effortsand other one has not much effort.one of the major aspect of plagiarism that people don’t talk much about that researchershire other writer to get their thesis done and they pay a good amount to thatperson. At the end person who is writing someone else’s thesis sell out his/herwork for a good amount which is quite shameful and I called this act asresearch prostitute.
Person who hire the other writer for thesis writing getthe benefit in form of degree even though the degree awarded to him is not thefruit of his own hard work. There are many reasons students plagiarise. Probablystudents don’t have much time because they have many assignments at the end ofsemester and they have to submit their assignments on due dates and they wantto save their time thus tend to copy their assignment.From the kindergarten student to a PhD student everyone knows the shortcuts andhow to plagiarise. Plagiarism has its roots very deep which has become aculture. Even there are several websites available that charge you money and inreturn provides you ample amount of intellectual material like essays, thesis,articles, research papers etc. with the help of these website students can gettheir desired material without investing any effort and hard work.
Thesewebsite are acts as barrier to students thought, creativity and writing ability.At professional level I don’t think people plagiarise their content becausethey don’t have much courage for that. People tend to Plagiarise who reallyknows that they will get away with it.
