HEC Plagiarism Policy
The Higher Education Commission (HEC) of Pakistan has implemented anti-plagiarism policy in higher education institutions (HEIs) in the country. The main purpose of implementing this policy is to develop a culture of production of original research in the research institutes. In this connection, HEC took the subscription of iThenticate anti-plagiarism software in 2007 and implemented it its recognized institutes. iThenticate was soon replaced with Turnitin anti-plagiarism and implemented in 2008.
