Turnitin vs Plagiarism

turnitin

Salam.
Dalam peperiksaan akademik kalau seseorang didapati meniru, beliau akan disabitkan dengan satu kesalahan besar. Bila menulis untuk tujuan akademik pula seperti untuk journal, thesis, kajian ilmiah atau assignment, meniru atau plagiat adalah juga kesalahan besar.

Mengikut kamus worldweb “plagiarise” (crime) take without referencing from someone else’s writing or speech; of intellectual property. Maksudnya mencedok, copy and paste, salin kerja orang tanpa membuat reference.

Faculty pun dah email:

Dear All Research Students;

Please be informed that with immediate effect, all PhD & MSc students are required to have their work checked by the Turnitin software, a tool for plagiarism detection, before submitting to the GSB Office for proposal/thesis examination. Refer to the instructions as per attached file and key in the necessary information as follows:

Please ensure that the similarity index is below 25%. You are required to revise your work and resubmit it to Turnitin if it exceeds 25%. Print the LAST page of the report to the GSB Office when you submit your proposal/thesis for examination.

Semalam cerita pasal mendeley, hari ni cerita pasal turnitin pulak. So, kena complylah sebab plagiat ni dah jadi budaya dalam dunia akademik. Ia sama macam mencurilah, cetak rompak, dll.
