ATTENTION BLOGGERS:Plagiarism...is it a crime??

To all bloggers:
Have you wonder....when you make notes using other people idea(from books,internet) ,it is actually a crime?What about misquoting a data?Copy others answer in exam? Passed up someone's assignment that you improvise as yours to your lecturer.

These are PLAGIARISM.

The definition: Copy other people statement without adequate acknowledgment of the source/writer

even you do it unintentionally, it is still consider as a crime


It is when you do it in a wrong way because there are ways to do it actually.
I learned about it during one of Community research Program (CRP) lecture.Since I learned by Problem Based Learning (PBL),I have to make notes and distribute it to my friends.Thus, i am prone to this crime. Moreover, i will conduct a research in my 4th year at UKM.

Blogger is also prone to plagiarism.So, if you use others idea, don't forget to mention the source and inform them.

WHAT CAN BE THE CONSEQUENCES?
1.Fail your exam
2.Drop out
3.Lost your job
4.Getting sued.
5.Make people angry??

HOW TO AVOID PLAGIARISM??

According to John A. Ferguson Sr. High
1.Proper time organization(avoid last minute panic) & notes(have list of resources)
2.Proper use of quotes,paraphrase & summaries(writing it in your own words but didn't lose the original meaning,thus interpret your source well)
3.Proper use of citation

Plagiarism is about moral,ethics,norms and knowledge.
It is an academic criminality!
It breach morality!
