Cheating and Plagiarism - Avoiding Plagiarism

Regardless of some short-lived flare-ups in the number of newspaper titles after the 1789 and 1848 Revolutions, it was not until the last quarter of the nineteenth century that the press experienced a period of unprecedented growth...   [tags: newspaper, press, journalists]
