In exchange for access to our scanner, we ask that you allow us to upload your essay to our database so that other students may use it to help them write their own essays. We won't do this until 3 months after your scan. Our database is just like Scribd, except it focuses on education resources. As you will already have submitted your work to your university, it's no longer of use to you, but you'll be really helping other students by allowing them to learn from your work as an example. We don't charge other students to view these essays - they are all accessible for free in order to help students worldwide - meaning you'll be helping fellow students to improve their academic skills.
Most countries and academic institutions have very strict plagiarism standards that they utilize to bring plagiarizers to justice. Copyright laws are very strict for the implicit reason of discouraging it in every possible way. Consequently, there have been many different methods developed to detect and prevent plagiarism. For instance, most scholarly articles are now only available on the internet for a price. This limits plagiarism in some ways but doesn’t completely solve the problem. For instance, many academic institutions provide their students with free access to scholarly databases like JSTOR. However, the internet should exist as a portal to vast information and knowledge. Requiring payment for an article is undemocratic and does not give people the opportunity to learn valuable information for free. Yet, it remains a paid service to access these sources to curtail unbridled plagiarism.
