Plagiarism can take different appearances in different fields of academic study, but it always comes down to not appropriately and accurately identifying a source every time information from the source appears.
For a case study of plagiarism in the field of computer science, read the following article:
Pedersen, T. (2001, April 19). A plagiarism case study. The University of Minnesota Duluth.
After you read Pedersenâ€™s case study, complete the following in your initial discussion post:
Create your own example of plagiarism
Provide an example of a way to cite the source properly
Devise the punishment that you think is appropriate for the plagiarism example you created. Write a paragraph explaining how this punishment would be implemented.
If you cite outside sources, please do so in APA format using the CSU Global Standards: CSU Global Writing Center
