JARAMILLO VALBUENA, Sonia  y  RINCON BELALCAZAR, Néstor Fabián. University Students and the Information Society: A Blend which Facilitates Academic Plagiarism in Colombian Classrooms. Inf. cult. soc. [online]. 2014, n.30, pp.127-137. ISSN 1851-1740.

The communications revolution has led to important transformations in people (Adell, 1997).  In this new age, the importance lies on human capital, in the way  the human being captures and verifies information, in their ability for getting the information and transform it into knowledge (Cordeiro, 1998; Consejo Pontificio para las Comunicaciones Sociales, 2002). The impact of this revolution has permeated various spheres, including the education sphere and has brought both positive and negative incidences. Among the positive ones, it is important to highlight a greater coverage, new models of teaching-learning, and more flexibility, all these features contribute to the universalization of education.  Unfortunately, the cyberspace in the educational process has generated deep changes in behavior of students and teachers, in their habits and values, and not all of these changes have been beneficial. Some behaviors that undermine ethics have become popular, being the plagiarism one of them. The aim of this paper is to analyze the university plagiarism problem. We present a review of the regulations and laws on copyright and we make an analysis on the impact of plagiarism. Finally, we propose a series of actions that universities can implement to counteract this problem.

Palabras clave : Copyright; Imitate; Copy; Plagiarism; Fraud; Professional ethics; Colombia.
