Plagiarism is rapidly becoming one of the most troublesome issues for academic institutions. In the digital age, copying and pasting work is extremely easy and, unfortunately, commonplace. In fact, a recent survey at Cambridge found that nearly half of all students admitted to having used improperly cited text at some point.
With the very high consequences associated with plagiarism, both for the students who are accused and for the schools wrestling with the issue, it is important to handle plagiarism cases in a productive manner that does more than merely punish those caught.
Fortunately, CopyByte can help. We have worked with various academic institutions, including high schools and colleges, to provide consulting, analysis and research to help schools deal with academic dishonesty.
