wePapers started with the laudable goal of making people smarter by allowing shared information on a university level, the site does all that and then some. Students or those interested in expanding their knowledge can log into wePapers and look at class notes, papers ranging from essays to full doctoral theses on every subject imaginable. All for free.

The down side is that these students and faculty who’re using the site could also find themselves victims of plagiarism. That’s a stigma that all sites of this nature must face. Too many will utilize the site to find papers they can put their name on and pass off as their own, in order to ace a class without having to work for it. Sadly, that’s how some people are.

Despite that stigma, this site is a glorious example of what the Web can really be used for. Touting itself as “the world’s biggest study group,” wePapers is that, I’m sure. Name a subject (I picked one of my favorites: history) and delve in. I was on the site to review it for this article, but ended up browsing through it and reading in-depth studies for hours. The only thing that saved me was my inability to read on-screen information for more than a couple of hours without getting eye-aches.

The site is that great. If you have time to spend reading real academic information on your favorite subject, then you’ll probably find yourself engrossed quickly. I guarantee you’ll bookmark it.

    There are always pros and cons in a web 2.0 app. These are some factors that are often beyond the control of developers, however it is still the responsibility of the site to ensure these factors do not directly affect certain organisations or insituitions.

    As a former writing center tutor, I think this site is a great idea. I will admit freely that it will be abused. Students who just don't care about their education (alas, a seemingly robust group) will certainly try to use the site to cheat. Wily professors should probably stop them in their tracks by simply failing any who do try, failing them for the course and reporting them to university administrators so they can be expelled. All that said, however, when there are serious students who want to bridge the distance gap to study and share ideas with like-minded students around the globe, this site helps them do just that. Kudos!

    To address the issue of plagiarism, perhaps there should be user acceptance clause to make the user to declare the ownership. This might work as deterrent.

    This is somewhat a great find for me. I would recommend it to my kids. Great place to connect and share info and to get materials for school projects.

    A great site to gain knowledge on specific subjects. Perhaps a good site to research information for assignments.

    We can't stop people from plagiarizing, it's the user's own integrity.

    Are the papers international or its only of a certain country?

    Are they only of essays form or they are on question and answers type? How can I prove the credential of it?As in whether the doctoral these are the facts or not?I am afraid of reading up articles that are actually falsely claimed.

    As to answering the title of the article. I believed its both for different people.However, to me, I affirmed that its expanding knowledge! For people like us, to expand our knowledge,we definitely find it beneficial. I believe it doesn't appeal to lecturers as they might have a hard time identifying if the work is a plagiarized work or not.

    It is definitely a good website for those who need to research on that particular subject. Plagiarizing is absolutely of the concerns of most people. Probably having a notification on the administrator site on what items are being downloaded for future investigation if plagiarizing occurs.

    That's wonderful!
    Everyone can be more knowledgeable through wePapers.Especially it's for free,so more people can have such a chance.
    But I think better a forum can be offered there for people to discuss questions they've suffered.

    It should be very simple for the professor to use wePapers to find cheaters. As long as the mechanism in place to identify the original author is reliable.
