Many professors and college teachers publish their texts with GRIN, besides we cooperate with colleges like HdM Stuttgart, University of Mainz and University of Zurich. Renowned media like Der SPIEGEL or Die ZEIT are our affiliate partners. Nevertheless we are often confronted with the subject "plagiarism".
We don't support cheating and plagiarism. We offer an archive full of valuable scientific information.
Professors and teachers may use our websites as control media of plagiarism. If there is a suspicion of plagiarism from one of our eBooks, just contact us. We help you to find out if your student has plagiarised.
A closer cooperation between teachers and students through mentoring already in the early stages of writing can help avoiding cheating. So the knowledge of the student concerning the subject can be checked at his point of time. Furthermore, teachers should ask their students to use the latest literature and define the subject in detail to prevent plagiarism.
By publishing texts in our archive, science itsself is brought forward. It cannot be the goal of college education to let students analyse the same subjects over and over again. Basic matters can be checked with written examinations.
Notice to all users of our archive: Copying works from others is a copyright infringement!scroll top
