Plagiarism is, of course, also prevalent between students themselves. Examples of this are that a student may plagiarise material from someone who has previously studied the same courses, at the same or at another school, or that through means of close collaboration, two students may copy each other’s work prior to a submission. As a rule, such student material is generally not published. Consequently, it cannot be searched for on the Internet or in published material.
Worth noting is that we make sure our customer, institutions and students, control what is indexed and not. You can even have a database of your own or shared with selected parter institutions or consortia.
