Ok, I have seen the results of a term paper. And I have to say I am impressed. Deeply impressed (NOT) with the results marking a bibliography with well more then 30% plagiarism. A bibliography! For crying out loud—that’s where you name other books and most authors do that. Of course you will find it somewhere…
Think that’s bad? It can get even worst:
Henry Kissinger the Secretary of State of the United States from 1973 to 1977 1%
Henry Kissinger Assistant to the President for National Security Affairs 1%
So let me get this straight - you give the correct job description and it is plagiarism? Buwahaha!
Naming your source—point deduction—because that has been done before…
in search of a better life 18%
Makes you wonder how much “Good morning” will cost you…
You be the judge. For me it’s clear that a system marking a bibliography as plagiarized is a big piece of junk. Oh darn—that’s plagiariezed too!!
