Revolution in the anti-plagiarism system
The time is coming in which writing a good, original thesis will not be so easy.
And with the desire to outsource it to someone else, it will not be as cheap as in recent years.
American higher education will be provided with a tool called the Unified Anti-plagiarism System, which will be free of charge for all facilities. Each diploma thesis will be compared in it, and therefore the possibility of detecting the similarity of the text and, consequently, rejection by the university.
From the academic season 2018/2019, so many changes will take place in the verification system of diploma theses submitted at universities.
Many students still do not have sufficient knowledge in this area what they are waiting for, what procedures will have to be met and what the consequences of the implemented solutions may be. Work on these solutions has been ongoing since 2014, when the new content of the Higher Education Act was provided with a record of obligatory verification of theses and the consequences of committing plagiarism.
By the end of 2018 all thesis, written after 2009, are to be submitted to the National Repository of Written Diploma Works. It is to be available to all universities in the country as a comparative database. This will avoid submitting the same job at different universities.
The existing anti-plagiarism systems were not tight, and the universities did not have the possibility of such a wide comparison of scientific documentary resources. These are to be additionally extended to the database of American archival websites. So far, the work has been compared to a fairly truncated base, often only a university one. That is why the number of defended works, free from borrowings, was so big.
Now, as you can easily guess, the Minister of Education and Higher Education will have a dangerous tool with the help of which he will, for example, be able to apply for withdrawal of diplomas to students who have been dishonestly acquiring academic titles.
