3Qs: Catching the copier

A well-​​respected German defense min­ister resigned recently after he admitted that parts of his 2006 doc­toral thesis repeated pas­sages by other authors without proper cita­tion. These days, copying and pasting makes it easier than ever to pla­gia­rize, espe­cially in acad­emia, where papers, projects and dis­ser­ta­tions are written every day. Brenda Berke­laar, a pro­fessor of com­mu­ni­ca­tion studies at North­eastern, clar­i­fies what pla­gia­rism is, how to pre­vent it, and how the short-​​term reper­cus­sions can have lasting effects.
