Plagiarism: Detecting Plagiarism

Learn how to avoid (and how to detect) plagiarism.


Instructors may be presented with assignments in which the words and phrasing are too perfect, too academic, or too out-of-keeping with previous work done by that student.  This page provides a few omnibus search sites for locating possible source materials, either from books, periodicals, or websites.

Select a unique phrase, and enclose in quotation marks.  Keep the phrase short.

For example:

"supports a dialogic approach to scholarly exchange"
