In a recent study, the academics and researchers found out something really alarming. The rate of plagiarism has been increasing in most popular colleges and universities. The study used a number of online plagiarism tools like “turn it in” and copyscape which are considered as the best plagiarism checking tools among the academics and scholars. From the data obtained from the study, it was revealed that 45% of the assignments including dissertation, essays or thesis submitted to these sites had more than 50% plagiarized contents in them. Previously it was only 28% and this is certainly an alarming thing for the people from academia.
There are number reasons behind this phenomenon. The researchers have already identified a couple of reason behind the rising trend of plagiarism. First of all, the students are not serious enough about their study and they do not want to spend time in writing authentic essays. Secondly, there are a number of companies that you can pay for paper and they will write the essays for you. But most of these companies are professional enough and they do not know how to write quality articles. Since the number of such companies increasing, the trend of plagiarism is also increasing.
