Abstract

In today's fast paced, digitalized world, copying has become easier than ever before due to the availability of a vast number of resources at the click of a button. Studies conducted by several universities have indicated an alarming increase in the number of plagiarism related instances in the last few years. The availability of a large amount of information and the ease with which it can be accessed are together contributing heavily towards the increase in plagiarism. Most of the students who have been surveyed in recent times have admitted guilt to some form of plagiarism. Therefore, it has become extremely important to curb this disturbing tendency and spread awareness about the negative effects of cheating. This paper aims to explore the reasons behind plagiarism and ways to avoid it thereby encouraging intellectual creativity.
