Plagiarism ruins reputation and lose personal credibility

Viewed 1757 times 2018-3-23 16:27 |System category:News| plagiarism

Plagiarism can be found frequently in the academic field, under the huge pressure, the professors and students have to plagiarize other's academic papers and thoughts to fabricate their own papers and books. I strongly oppose the way of publishing books and papers by plagiarizing others. But I want to discuss the negative reflection of plagiarism in the field.

First of all, plagiarism must be considered as illegal behavior, the plagiarist must be sued and investigated by the original authors who hold the copyright of these works. Seriously, the plagiarist might lost their jobs and break the good reputation and impression. The worst result is that they could not find a position in this field. Secondly, the plagiarism violates the original authors' legal rights. They took time and efforts to develop their academic research, but they didn't get the equal honor. Thirdly, it has negative reflection, people may think doing research is the simplest way to be a social climber in the academic field, more and more amateurs will join in the group and plagiarize other's published works.

I resist plagiarism, but I think people can learn scientific methods and useful thoughts to develop their own papers and books. If you show your respect to others and follow the academic morality, you will be respected by other authors after you published your works. If we work in a honesty and high quality academic environment, the academic level will be improved day by day.

To avoid the catastrophic consequences of plagiarism, we should enhance the awareness of protecting intellectual copyright. The university need to announce the rules of punishment of plagiarism to all students and faculty. The government should set a series of strict supervising system to restrict and prevent plagiarism.

We must stifle plagiarism in the beginning and nurture good academic habit in the cradle. In this way, we can create a favorable atmosphere and keep good reputation and personal credibility.
