The practice of just downloading information from the Internet is among the key reasons in the
deterioration of research quality among university students. Higher Education Department director
general Datuk Dr. Radin Umar said today.
He said there was a tendency among university students to limit their research by simply ‘cutting and
pasting’ articles from the Internet.
Dr. Radin said that such a culture should be stopped as it did not reflect the core values of academic
life and was tantamount to plagiarism. He reminded university students to produce original work.
