Workshop "Be Plagiarism Free: Examples and Strategies"
In this seminar we will define clearly different types of academic fraud and provide you with some useful guidelines to ensure that your paper is free of plagiarism. Plagiarism is considered a grave sin in the academic world. We all are aware of the necessity to avoid committing either accidental or intentional plagiarism. However, plagiarism in the English-speaking world has its own specifics in comparison with the views in Russia. It does not only refer to the practice of copying someone else’s work and presenting it as your own or paraphrasing someone else’s wordings without giving them any credit. Plagiarism comes in many guises in the academic environment abroad.
