Throughout this essay I will illustrate the reasons to why students tend to plagiarism, what are the key factors that lead students to plagiarism, whether it is lack of information been given out or it is those dents who have less time managements and less skilled on how to be organized. It is argued though this essay that students who study English as a second language are more likely to plagiarism, due to the misunderstanding of copy paste and lack of education.
Students with second language background are more likely to plagiarism due to the fact that students have been given the wrong information whether it is right to copy paste other students, or journal articles, the structure the way to reference, there has been claimed that students have less knowledge about copy paste. (Kathy, 2003, p. 4) Illustrates that students have a corruption not only in their cultural background to be given the right to copy paste but rather in their education system and in that particular country as well.

However, it is also argued that students have less knowledge about plagiarism, and they are unsure of the outcome. (Carroll, 2002, p. 2) argues that students do not intensely want to plagiarism but yet they do not know what plagiarism is. The lack of information system has a huge impact on students’ education especially to those students, who study at different universities around the world, tend to face lots of barrios including plagiarism, and that may effect on heir outcome, ether they fail or be expelled, depends on university regulations. Howard, 2000,p. 1) suggests that the penalty of incited writing, should be a failing grade. (Kathy, 2003, p. 13) mentions a ‘Response Of a Professor, A’, who was recently new teacher at that time, had a student handed out a her work, which was almost been copied a sources from the Internet word by word and were about to fail that student, however he asked a teacher and their response was fin some cultures copying is quite common and even considered as a compliment,’ he was then advised to discuss plagiarism with the students.
Response of a professor, A ‘ is a countless explanation of how students with different background tend to plagiarism Witt out noticing what the outcome would be, since they have been taught that it is fine to copy other sources with out citing or paraphrasing. Students must have a knowledge about plagiarism whether it is fine to copy or not, student should be informed that copying other sources is as theft and the outcome results would be a fail or expelled. The two key factors of why a second language student tends to plagiarism are, A, students ‘Intention’ to plagiarism and B, ‘Unintentional’ to plagiarism.
Students who are intentionally to plagiarism is due to the fact that they have been taught that it is fine to copy other source based on the knowledge of students being perceived and understanding what they have been writing about. The reasons why students tend to intently plagiarism is also argued that lack of organization, the pressure on the students who are willing to pass, the social norms gaining such behavior and the way to cheat the system and pass with success marks. Animal & Lucas, 201 1, p. 14) suggest that “In Asia, China and Greece, high marks were seen as important in terms of finding a DOD job, but especially for them to undertake an overseas postgraduate program may lead to cheating’. Consequently, students lean towards popularizing, aimed at a greater opportunity in fining ‘the perfect job’, many students in Asia always seek the easiest way to a accomplish their pathway in a successful job opportunity.
However, there are students who unintentionally want to plagiarism, it has been argued that students with less understanding Of what precisely plagiarism is, and how to avoid plagiarism. (Kathy, 2003,p. 2) argues that the main argument IS not the concept of legalism but is how to avoid it not how to define it. (Huh, 2001 , p. 54) argues that students in china and Italy study science and history are advised to copy an answer from a source as given by their teachers. Holland, 2001 cited by Sherman p. 375) states that Italian students who copy a source and notes the authors name, it was considered as showing respect. Yet in other cultures teachers suggest that it is a useful learning strategy (Huh, 2001, cited by Kathy, p. 6) mentions that the development of students writing is considered as a concept of ‘Patterning’, which it is mainly insider as plagiarism, yet teachers consider it as a meaningful way to develop a second language students in writing skill. Howard 1993) however, States that ‘Patterning’ as “copying from a source text and then deleting some words” it is argued that it are a form of writing skill. (Huh, 2001 ,p. 57) also states that ‘Patterning is considered as a significant writing strategy. Second language students are been targeted as one of the top plagiarism students in universities. It is argued that students with a native background tend to plagiarism because they have limited skills in referencing rephrasing, summarizing and management.
Native students who struggle to write a research conducted by them with the time frame, they tend to plagiarism and conduct their research. Students lean to plagiarism due running out of time or being irresponsibly and they face catastrophic out come. (Kathy, 2003,p. 8) illustrates that a faculty had conducted a survey in SSL classroom, asking students why they avoid ‘summarizing, paraphrasing and citations,’ which was recommended as less direct approach with students, (Holland, 2001 Cited by Kathy, p. ) suggested that plagiarism is a kindly a insensitive topic, and teachers tend to discuss with students orally, with a clear understanding of plagiarism, regardless of where they have came from. Students should be informed of plagiarism and its regulations specially a second language students who have less knowledge of the education system, where students must submit their assignments on a data pass called ‘turn-it- in’, which it is programmed to detect a plagiarisms words been used by students with out being cited as a reference. Eve & Heather, 2013) suggest that it is the facilities responsibility to insure students and teachers the procedures and analyses for plagiarism. (Maraca & Kathleen 2007,p. 13) suggest that students should be informed by their teachers to enhance their capabilities in academic skills and be insured by current ideas of literacy and media literacy, on conducting research, which requires more complexity then rather they find from the internet and copying them, but should be advised and clarified the meaning of plagiarism so that they wont fall in that category.
