In these cases, one of the easiest ways to discover this type of practice is simply to enter an exact phrase of work in an Internet search engine, will immediately appear any coincident with the job reference.But more important than detecting plagiarized or copied work is to avoid that the student carry out this practice. Because caught it or not, the damage will be done. Since the problem lies not only in the students become accustomed to a dishonest practice, but that in doing so, the student leaves of the skills for which the academic works, such as the capacity for synthesis, reading comprehension are destined or simply learn to write. Get from very small to copy the work, and not make the slightest effort, students come to higher grades without having acquired these fundamental skills in the learning, making it difficult largely the teaching activity of the teacher, says Dolores Atalaya. Order increasingly specialised jobs, teach students to cite sources and properly use the information consulted on the network, and course, to warn them that the teacher is able to detect if you have copied or not, are some of the proposals to avoid plagiarism that propose consulted teachers.
Antiplagio software since 2003, in some countries like the United States, France or United Kingdom, the use of specialized software to detect the academic plagiarism, especially at the college level is spreading. Programs like Harman, Eve2, Wcopyfind, Compilatio or My DropBox, are able to track millions of Web pages, and in some cases in other scholarly works database, to verify in a few minutes if the work delivered by a student has been copied or not. In Spain, for now, in this sense only is available application Educared Antiplagio, a free software that allows you to locate and identify documents plagiarized from the analysis of different sources.As point Ruben Comas and Jaume Sureda in your cyber-academic plagiarism article. An approach to the State of knowledge, published in the journal of Cybersociety texts, conclusions of those authors who have analysed the usefulness and effectiveness of such programs suggest that the mere fact of having software antiplagio, and that this fact will be known by students, is enough to scare away many students commit plagiarism. Although they also added antiplagio software is not infallible and fails to detect many cases of plagiarism, and is, first of all, students always find ways to circumvent controls technology, and secondly, the size and the speed of expansion of the Internet it makes it practically impossible to control everything can be found online.
