Now that what plagiarism is, is clear what is important is how plagiarism can be stopped. The most important question which needs to be addressed is that who are the people who indulge in acts of plagiarism? A study by The Centre for Academic Integrity found that almost 80% of college students admit to cheating at least once and as per a survey by the Psychological Record 36% of undergraduates have admitted to plagiarizing written material. Therefore looking at the statistics we can say that plagiarism is rampant among college students. However it must be remembered that sometimes plagiarism is intentional and sometimes it is not. Therefore a student, to avoid plagiarizing accidentally must keep accurate notes when doing research; he or she must also educate himself or herself on university plagiarism policies. Apart fro this, the student must master the procedure for citing the sources and learn to paraphrase without borrowing the language or structure in the original source. To avoid the temptation to plagiarize intentionally a student should visit a specialist who can teach him or her how to edit a paper or plan an essay. The student must also visit his or her instructor during office hours and ask questions in class to clarify course requirements or instructions for assignments and he or she must also consult web based resources. A student must also consider the consequences of plagiarism before he or she tries to pass off someone else’s work as his or her own, he or she must realize that missing a deadline or receiving a low score will not tarnish his or her academic record in the same way as sanctions from a educational regulatory body will (these guidelines are for UC Davis students but seem to be effective guidelines for students all over the world). However even so students might still be tempted to indulge in plagiarism, in such cases I guess disciplinary measures and penalties (the harshness of which should depend from case to case) would be the only means to prevent this.
