Chulalongkorn University software detects plagiarism

26/06/2014 
Thitirat Muangsiri 

Chulalongkorn University along with 17 other universities and institutions has agreed to adopt the new Akarawisut computer program to detect plagiarism in theses submitted by university students. 

The universities signed the academic collaboration agreement to use the Akarawisut (clean text) program to maintain the quality of students’ theses, said Pirom Kamolratanakul, president of Chulalongkorn University. 

Prof Pirom said Chulalongkorn University had been focusing on trying to solve the problem of plagiarism and hadlaunched several measures to detect it. 
  
These measures were developed into text analysis software such as Akarawisut and Turnitin. 

The programs had been applied to more than 1,000 theses in 2013. To extend the plagiarism detection policy, Chulalongkorn University allowed other educational institutions to use the Akarawisut program free of charge under the agreement. 

The universities and institutions include the National Institute for Development Administration (NIDA), Mae Fah Luang University, University of Phayao, Burapha University and Thaksin University. 

The collaboration led to an increase in quality standards among post-graduate theses and helped encourage Thai students to be honest in their work, he said. 

Amorn Petsom, president of Chulalongkorn University graduate school, said the agreement was the first step to create connections among institutes to detect thesis plagiarism and prevent students from committing it. 

“We believe human resources are the best foundation for developing the country. This is why Chulalongkorn University aims to create good-quality graduates and staff,” he said. 

"Technology makes it easy to plagiarise these days, but this program will help prevent it. The collaboration with other universities is important.”

Ajarn Donald‘s insight:

This case study is very well prepared and I personally like to say thank you to Professor Jyrki Loima and Ajarn Jutarat Vibulphol for taking the time to conduct this case study and sharing the results in a post (link above).

Next I would like to say that with my 13-years experience having taught more than 6,500 people English in Thailand in ages 4-60 years old but most were secondary students (teenagers M/1-M/6 = 7th graders-12th graders) that I fully agree with these results.

How can we get the parents, students, teachers and schools to come together and examine what are the realistic and practical ways to change this negative trend and make it positive for all students?
