Meaning of Plagiarism
Plagiarism is the technique in which a copy is being made of the thoughts, ideas, expressions and presentation. This copy is being made by the other person in order to maintain the data for the research or to submit the report or the assignment in the universities. The data and information can be collected from the published and unpublished data. The copy or the document is being given an own name to represent it for oneself. The data and information can be copied from the internet, writing, journals, magazines, articles, books etc. so that the assignment and research can be made and prepared. Images, videos, sentences, words can be copied so that the presentation can be made more attractive, understanding and beautiful. After copying or pasting the material it is important to show the relevant name of the person in the presentation or it is important to show the source of reference in the documents. If a person fails to properly refer the source of information is called as Plagiarism (Salleh, et. al., 2012). Plagiarism can lead to many of the consequences and can create legal actions towards a person in not using referencing the proper like of the source.

These consequences are being explained so that it can be avoided and new data are being used from different sources:
Punishments: Punishments are to provide to the researchers and students in order to use the plagiarism in preparing the research and documents or assignments (Gullifer and Tyson, 2010). This is done as to not use the words, sentences, paragraphs same as one has done before. Sometimes punishment is being given so that plagiarism can be reduced and even avoided (Salleh, et. al., 2012).
Involvement of risk: Great risk is involved in plagiarism like the wrong interpretation of information, a copy of the whole data, privacy gets disclosed and a lot more. These issues are to be solved if precautions are being taken on time.

This can result in the law being sui on the leader or the person is using the copy of the author. The two people using the same author can be indicated as a risk or fraud issues (Karabag and Berggren, 2012).
Honesty and trust: The plagiarism is being used at a high level; honesty and trust get to break down (Salleh, et. al., 2012). The trust and the honesty get breakdown which can lead the unfair means being done after copying the documents and articles (Owunwanne, et. al., 2010). Follow does not trust these types of documents and reports as they the copies made by the other persons giving their own name.

Because of the copying of the data from different sources, it is being an issue created that the data is being wrongly presented and analysed by the readers and being interpreted by the leaders too (Owunwanne, et. al., 2010). The information provided is not being understood properly by the followers and being wrongly explained by them.

Awareness changes the perception of the person and influences them to think more and in a different way.
A numberof activities: while conducting the research and making the assignments, it is the duty and responsibility of the teachers and lecturers to give the number of activities to the researchers and students (Gullifer and Tyson, 2010). These activities can be similar or can be different so they do not copy the information and data from different sources. A number of activities will also lead to more number of works hence; fewer people will get less time to copy the information from other sources.
