Reasons For Plagiarism  

Plagiarism is an issue that has been an ardent subject of study by many intellectuals. As in the case of any fraud, this act too has its own interpretation and reasoning.

Various facts have been highlighted as potent reasons for this act of misdemeanor.One of the prime reasons of plagiarism is that undergraduate students in general do not have very good research expertise, which is a must for preparation of any research or dissertation paper. Lack of this skill leads to dissatisfaction amongst students. This, in turn, easily lures them into literary theft in order to accomplish their task.

Secondly, there are very few who are blessed with the creative flair of writing. Those who have weak written communication skills always look for an easy way out, and plagiarism happens to be one of them.

Thirdly, students, at times, become a victim of unintentional plagiarism, as they may not know how to sift sources or written matter from the Internet. In fact, many are not even well versed with the process of citation of sources and due to this end up being part of the offense.

There are many other personal reasons due to which students resort to plagiarism. One chief reason is pressure to perform. Educational degrees are a must for carving a niche for oneself in society and the path to attain those lie in achieving high results. Excellent grades form a pre-requisite to obtain scholarships for higher education. The blunder that students make is that instead of giving importance to hard work and learning, they take short cuts by cheating. Also, there are always deadlines to meet with regard to the submission of research papers. Students therefore, need to be good at time management skills and should plan research before hand. Those who fail to do so, panic at the last moment and fall prey to plagiarism.

Lastly, scrounging of knowledge could also be due to cultural differentiation amongst students. At times, differences in culture can lead to confused state of mind and plagiarism may seem as the only alternative in such a scenario.
