Resources

Promoting original thinking involves more than just detecting plagiarism. It requires knowledge! Find  useful resources below to support you on your quest for academic excellence.

Copenhagen Business School (CBS), the biggest school of economics in northern Europe, has a very strict policy on plagiarism of research and student theses.

After implementing Urkund they could quickly see an increase in the volume of detected plagiarism. Furthermore, Urkund started to be used as a basis for discussion with the students and a pedagogical tool, thus giving CBS the upper hand when it came to proactively dealing with the underlying issues of plagiarism.
