Chegg follows a zero-tolerance policy against plagiarism. Our in house-team has sophisticated    high-end software that can detect plagiarism with 100% accuracy.

On failing to submit the solutions according to Chegg’s TBS guidelines, our in-house team will  check your solutions and take strict action. This can also lead to immediate revocation of your  answering privileges. 

  Below are some ways to avoid the notorious “plagiarism issue.”

  1. Referencing proper nouns – This is an easy one to fall victim to.  Make sure to substitute any proper noun with an alias if you must include it.  For example, instead of writing a company name like Jeans for Juniors, write, “The jeans company, which we’ll refer to as Company A”.  Do not abbreviate by using acronyms.
  2. Copying/scanning images – Please create your own graphs/diagrams when a problem calls for it.  Scanned images will not be considered.
  3. Quoting websites – Even if you put information in quotations, any information that you borrow from another source and put into your solution can constitute copyright infringement.
