Means to prevent and avoid plagiarism

  • Software calculates the rate of similarity between original documents and a new document. 5% similarity is "acceptable", above 25%, the similarity is abnormal and identified as plagiarism.
  • Students who are required to make assignments can be held accountable: in some universities, teachers have their students sign a contract in which they agree not to resort to plagiarism.
  • By requesting systematically to establish a bibliography and list of resources consulted.

The student can avoid falling into the trap of plagiarism by fulfilling cumulative conditions:

  • Paraphrasing or inserting a short text in quotation marks justified by the illustration
  • AND quoting the source of information
  • AND by making a bibliography at the end of the work
