Causes of plagiarism

- Unfamiliarity with source citation standards (protection of sources): texts, images, sounds from Internet are often perceived as public documents free of rights and therefore not subject to the same protection as documents published on a medium Materials (paper, DVD, CD, etc.). This lack of knowledge of the rules of intellectual property law, copyright law and the various licenses available in digital format may encourage students to use the information they find on Internet without citing the title of the works and the name of their authors.

- Time saving: some students say they are "obliged" to "copy and paste" in order to respect the time allowed to do their work

- Social mimicry and a sense of impunity: the accepted idea that everyone does it without problems, without risking punishment from the university or the courts.
