Case 5


The rising number of plagiarism and cheating also bring to new solutions, concomitantly. That means,
In the academic area, researchers or the necessitated authorized persons struggling to generate new
measurement and punishments to prevent these issues. Also, The purpose of this exploratory study
was to examine, analyze, and getting solutions on the issues. Therefore, a study was conducted in
Peru; however, the results have a worldwide impact, according to the authors.

Keywords: plagiarism, cheating, citations, zero tolerance


In this case study, researchers discuss the main topic, about plagiarism and cheating. There were so
many different reasons to lead to plagiarism and cheating. Some students were in a cheating situation
that they didn’t know, but other students were always copying some information to be their own
words. Nowadays, some students had more vanity. Sometimes some students copy the other person’s
assignment or words to be their own work for getting a good grade. This was a huge reason. On the
other hands, there was no clear limit about plagiarism and citation. There were so many students
confused about that. Some rules were very strict. However, students who had a mentality about how to
use citation or quotation were at a small rate. For example, as Tantaleán Odar said that: “Copying
without indicating the source is a natural behavior in students” (Peru, 2017). The citation and
quotation were more important in the USA. Students need to pay attention to these rules and laws.

In this case, researches on plagiarism were made in specific to ‘Peru’. For this reason, the data given in
this article are gained from Peru. Having said that, the results have universal and international
qualifications, in nature.
The vast majority of the instances of plagiarism and cheating recognized included students with a
record of problematic scholarly execution in the program. The most cases involved students are
located with substandard academic performance.20 percent of them were involved in plagiarism and
cheating in the lowest quartile and, merely 2 percent of the students in higher grade quartiles. As well,
neither of them completed their coursework later had defended their dissertation, successfully.
In the three of other classes, in Master of Epidemiology, in Peru, besides cheating and plagiarism, the
types of latter also were detected such as; literal plagiarism, self-plagiarism, inappropriate sharing of
work, and
students’ appropriation of other work. The rising of the plagiarism and cheating published
internationally among undergraduate and high school students (McCabe 2005; McCabe et al. 2001),
also including
students of medical and allied health sciences (Rennie and Crosby 2001; Taradiet al. 2010).
Therefore, prevention, detection, and response to plagiarism should hold should have a huge
precedence in the Academy, as like Peru and America.
The reasons for plagiarism and cheating are originated from, being lack of writing and referencing
capable, poor academic performance, and flexible attitudes to plagiarism. Except that, a limited
awareness of research integrity and tolerance to plagiarism or difficulties of comprehending
conception of research integrity.
According to Previous researches (Heitman et al. 2007; Ryan et al.2009) prove that limited
knowledge of RCR and plagiarism in graduate students in the U.S., particularly among international
graduates.Shortages of analytic and writing skills can lead to plagiarism. In Latin America, the
tolerance of plagiarism can be seen every category of education. (Vasconcelos et al. 2009; Heitman
and Litewka 2011)
When investigating the solutions of these issues some strict enforcement was seen in Peru by the
National Assembly of Rectores, as giving a penalty of suspension two undergraduate law students due
to literal plagiarism. (Tantaleán Odar 2014)
Moreover, according to the reports of authors, several approved academic theses contain plagiarism.
(Saldana-Gastulo et al. 2010; Huamani et al.2008).
To prevent the plagiarism and cheating, universities should have a disciplinary and comprehensive
instruction, including so strict penalties.otherwise they could not control the plagiarism.
Before every semester, the importance and penalties of plagiarism ought to tell and remind to the
students. All kinds of forward-looking steps, likely prevent the plagiarism
A ‘’zero tolerance’’ policy was adopted regards of plagiarism (Titus et al. 2008). The doubtful
researches are reported, examined and sanctioned, even though there is no an international consortium
or consensus, these measurements help solve the issue.
In low-resource settings, resource limitations and reliance on external subsidizing may debilitate
researching evidently "gentle" cases to evade the related expenses and potential harms of notoriety. Be
that as it may, the long haul unfavorable results of enduring copyright infringement and in this manner
graduating understudy with poor RCR learning, exceed any of these fleeting obvious advantages.
None of the students who conferred plagiarism infringement were known to take part in promoting
occasions amid the program and no extra wrongdoing occasions have been recognized in the 2014
The ‘zero tolerance’ policy was clarified by fortified through discourse sessions by written
statements; which clarify all course of syllabi, and updated honor code is signed by an agreement to
retain research and academic integrity and report any specified cases. Honor
codes constitute a simple, low-cost strategy that has been shown to prevent
academic misconduct
Honor codes constitute a straightforward, ease methodology that has been appeared to avert scholastic
misconduct (McCabe et al. 2001). It should be more effective if a clear-cut honor code might be other
option to measure mislead by directly engaging students and all the academic and scientific
First, plagiarism seems to be widespread, likely involving all stages of the educative system. Second,
it is possible to implement ‘’tolerance” a “zero plagiarism prevention policy with a strong educational
component in postgraduate research programs

First of all, plagiarism has a huge impact on the World most probably involved in all the education
system. Second of all; In Ph.D. programs, there is a possibility for implement tolerance ''a zero''
plagiarism policies with a strong educational component. Besides of that, the key points are related to
plagiarism unawareness of plagiarism and its implication

Third, key features associated with plagiarism in Latin America that should be considered when
discussing plagiarism in the classroom include the unawareness of plagiarism and its implications the
inescapability of ineffectively "patchwriting" created composing aptitudes and the broad utilization of
" Copy/ paste ‘’

Finally, the emergency of educative institutions at all levels recognize the frequent seems of academic
and research misconduct and integrity as an effective, institutional goal.

.Furthermore, as the methods for taking part in deceptive nature have extended in the Web period,
preventive methodologies combined with zero resistance for literary theft and duping will have a
noteworthy part for controlling scholarly and research unfortunate behavior, even in low asset settings
( Grieger 2007).

To conclude, Plagiarism and cheating appear to be a frequent problem in research training programs in
resource-limited settings, such as Peru. As it can be seen in the Peru, Plagiarism, and cheating are an
enormous frequency in academic studies. Instead of Penalties, institutional and programmatic levels
can be conducted by a strict, effective detection and zero tolerance.
