Are websites like Wikipedia, The New York Times online, and Google for research or plagiarism?
PHILADELPHIA,PA (RUSHPRNEWS)AUGUST 21, 2008–Most everyone agrees that the Internet has been the biggest boom to research and information sharing since the invention of the printing press. But a new website is being accused of pushing students to plagiarize, although it is no different from the sites mentioned above.
A recent editorial by a news contributor on Vator.tv, Josh Chandler writes “PayPerz.com is the unethical money scheme for students”.
You be the judge, is this statement justified? The leadership of www.Payperz.com describes the website in the statement as follows: Students spend countless hours researching and writing, it has always been done for education and a degree. Now that effort is being turned in to spending money.
The launch of a new Student community website allows students to publish their papers, while maintaining full ownership of their work.
Until now, students wrote a paper or essay, turned it in for grading, it sat on their computer hard drive until that hard drive crashed. Students would say â€œWell, it stinks, but I got the grade, and I graduatedâ€. Now students can archive their work, share it with other students, and earn some serious gas money.
The writing that High School and College students do can now act as an annuity that pays them for life. â€œThe work students do is more than busy work, itâ€™s valuable research that can be used by students and teachers alike year after yearâ€ says Co-Founder of PayPerz.com, Richard Wohl. â€œOur student community allows students to archive their work, not only is the service free, but they get paid a share of the advertising revenue generated by their workâ€.
Modeled after some very successful self-publishing websites, PayPerz.com is specifically geared to College and High School Students. â€œCovering hundreds of subjects and growing daily, our indexed and searchable database is written to make the most of search engine technology, as more students participate in PayPerz.com, the amount of information will give our website an incredible amount of unpublished, unique content.â€ One technology advantage over other similar sites, PayPerz.com allows users to upload directly from a Word Documents, no retyping needed. Although an advances text editor is available to edit or add to existing documents. PayPerz.com also allows students to add unlimited pictures and video to their research. The site still in beta testing is open to all High School and College students in the United States.
PayPerz.com protects students from being plagiarized by quickly indexing their work, this allows the tools currently in use by Universities around the country to insure content turned in is unique.
Currently PayPerz is working with cost-per-action advertisers in order to protect itâ€™s partners from click fraud. PayPerz.com and itâ€™s student publishers only get paid when a click leads to an action. This helps PayPerz to ensure it keeps its advertisers happy, it discourages community members from clicking for the sake of clicking. The real value of the site is in the un-indexed research and information it will provide.
Once out of Beta, PayPerz.com will be paying itâ€™s top student publisher a $5000 cash prize, now thatâ€™s some serious college spending money.
