Plagiarism: to check or not to check

Plagiarism is a violation of copyright as it involves reproducing (parts of) another person’s work without stating the source, and thereby failing to comply with an essential aspect of copyright. Intentional plagiarism constitutes a deadly sin within the academic world. In many cases, however, it is not clear whether the plagiarism is intentional or simply negligence.

Several software tools enable plagiarism check. As of January 2015 all dissertations at TU Delft have a mandatory plagiarism check. The tool checks words and phrases (or parts of phrases) in the text to be examined for full or partial matches with source material. Read more about plagiarism check using the LINK below.
