REALISE THE PAIN OF THE REAL AUTHOR:The plight of the mother when her son writes the other name in place of her name can be comparable to the original author's situation when his/her writing is plagiarized by others * Plagiarism is a process in which one uses the other's work/ideas without giving value to the original author.(1)Plagiarism is a mixture of stealing and denying the truth. It's a crime. everyone own their self-ideas and they are protected by copyright laws.(2)Plagiarism is confined to every sector including music, movies, advertisements etc.(1) * The statement "I don't know" doesn't work in the case of plagiarism. Though you plagiarize any material unknowingly that plagiarism is a crime, there will be no chance of considering your explanation. you will be shown as a culprit. TYPES OF PLAGIARISM(3) Depending upon the extent to which the person has plagiarized , it is classified as the following types: If the source is not cited,it is of following types (a)"THE GHOST WRITER":The person writes(copies) the other's work exactly without any change and present that work as his own work. (b)"THE PHOTOCOPY":The important points from the original work was copied exactly. (c)"THE POTLUCK PAPER":This is more or less faking the audience.The person will collect the information from several sources .here the person will not change the original work. (d)"THE POOR DISGUISE":here the person changes the important words and phrases. (e)"THE LABOUR OF LAZINESS":The main problem with this condition is,the person leaves the original content and tries to make the paper perfectn using other sources. (f)"THE SELF-STEALER":Here the person uses his/her old works. Plagiarism is suspected even if the source is cited,then it is classified as follows (a)"THE FORGOTTEN FOOTNOTE":Here the person gives the information of only author's name but will not give other information from where the material is obtained. (b)"THE MISINFORMER": In this condition the person will give false information regarding the source and therefore the audience cannot find out the exact source. (c)"THE TOO PERFECT PARAPHRASE":Here the person copies exactly the source and will not keep them under quotations.Here the person provides the correct souce of original information. (d)"THE RESOURCEFUL CITER":Here the person gives proper information regarding the source and will use quotation marks wherever necessary,But his work lacks originality. (e)"THE PERFRCT CRIME":Here the person provides the information about the source,but will deny at some other areas.atahis makes the audience think as if he/she analysed it. Plagiarism shows the person's incapability to understand the original source and lack of writing skills. In science,the new ideas come from our brain from old knowledge and information sources ,so its compulsory to provide necessary information regarding the previous sources.(4) AVOID PLAGIARISM: Avoiding plagiarism is so simple if one follows the following: (a)DO PARAPHRASING BUT NOT PLAGIARISM:One should study the material and undertand it completely and then written in his/her own style.changing few words or using synonyms is not paraphrasing.we have to read a single sentence ,undertand it and write it completely in one's own style.Be cautious that the original thought of the author must not change .This can be achieved easily.While studying,think as if you are chatting with the author.Then close the book ,take paper and start writing in our own way makes good sense of practising.(4) No need of giving citation to "common knowledge ".but make sure that before presenting without citation ,it is common knowledge (known to large number of people).(5) DO CITATION PROPERLY AND PERFECTLY: Make sure that the following information is included in your references: * Author's name * Title of the subject * Source from which it is obtained(text book or webpage or journal) In addition, publishers and page no.s should be included if possible date of publishing (in case of journals).(6) USE OF QUOTATION MARKS: If you want to include the statement exactly from the original work,then keep quotation marks and give proper citation.then write something about the statement included in the quotation marks after quoting. If the statement contains double quotation marks,the use single quotation marks in their place to show the difference(6) CONCLUSION: ? One should have personal ethics .we should give value to the original author.people should be aware of plagiarism as ingnorance is not the correct explanation.

hello sir, your blog is very simple and informative one i have a query!. how can one find an exact citation of an article, please eloberate on citation. as the citation is an broad term!.
Satyajeeth Pandey's picture

Hi raja I believe I covered your question in my blog. I am extending my explanation for you. You have to cite your resource details. If you feel that your work taken from a particular source is important, you can cite details in the paragraph itself. Or else you can keep them in the references. And your citation depends upon the material you have collected. If you collect it from internet, you have to cite the web address and accessed date. If it is journal, then include author name, title, and dare of publication,and page numbers. And if its text book,include the name of author and textbook, publisher and page number.

thank you for your concern about my comment i think my question has not reached you properly. what i mean to ask is that.... when i try to read an review article and find some part of it as an important one to be reproduced in my article or my blog then while adding on the citation should i give the details of the review article or the reference given in the review article.
Siva Mavuduru's picture

I think I know this answer I think the details of the review article is enough
K Rajakrishna's picture

hi ganesh, thank you for your interest in my question!. if such is the case then don't you feel that you will be ignoring the efforts of the review article writer!. the efforts that he has put in writing the review! and for a reader who look at such a citation will directly refer back to the reference in the review article, bypassing the review article. thus there is no credit to the review article!. what do you say?.

Sir, the first line itself is touching. The classification you posted is great and informative. Does the punishment in any field remains same for the culprit? Or is science sector given more prominence?

Hi Sravani Though plagiarism is highlighted in academic field, its a problem in every sector.The punishment is based on the conditions. In educational institutions the student grade may decrease or in severe conditions he will be expelled from the college. In organizations,if commit plagiarism, they will be dismissed or their pay may be stopped for some months. And we see the same in music and movies too. Maximum paying money will ruin the problem.In case of literature the books may be banned or cases can be solved by giving money. Some times plagiarism leads to jail punishment too.

Thank you for your words. As a teacher i believe that you have already found some of your students who did plagiarism, which kind of punishments did you give to them? Which one was the more extreme ? Thank you Merry Christmas
Satyajeeth Pandey's picture

Frankly I never gave punishments to anyone because of this aspect. I don't think it is even possible according to the situations here. I will only suggest my students to write in their own way after teaching.

The way you classified the information about plagiarism is very simple, understandable and gives more information sir, if the person copies a figure or flowchart from an article, in can be considered as plagiarism or not
