Google has changed the face of writing papers forever. These days plagiarism runs wild because it is so easy to grab content. However teachers now use software based products to scan your work to identify if anything has been plagiarized. The rule in writing papers is that sources are cited properly. The other day I discovered OpenThesis, a free repository of theses, dissertations, and other academic documents. It also features the ability to save searches, alerts, portfolios and organize documents. From what I can see, it is the only free database of of this kind. The information is out there, just use it wisely!
