In recent years, the problem of academic fraud has become increasingly serious on university campuses and more and more people voice growing concern over it.
Such a phenomenon has brought many unfavorable consequences. To begin with, there is no doubt that it has blocked the country's scientific development. Second, the confession of some reputable professors that they have plagiarized others works seriously undermines the public trust in intellectual integrity. Last but not least, scholars lacking in professional integrity exert a bad influence on young students, who followed the trend instead of pursuing innovation.
It is more than necessary that all the relevant departments join in the efforts to fight against this notorious phenomenon. As to the administrations concerned, it is high time for them to take effective measures to curb the misconduct and encourage creativity in academic field. More over, it is crucial for the government to oversee the work of researchers. Only when every member of the society realizes the harm brought by academic dishonesty can we put an end to the abominable practice.
