The Issue of (Software) Plagiarism: A Student View
Chuda, D.; Navrat, P.; Kovacova, B.; Humay, P.
IEEE Transactions on Education, v55 n1 p22-28 Feb 2012
The issue of plagiarism is discussed in the context of university education in disciplines related to computing. The focus is therefore mainly on software plagiarism. First, however, a case is made for the claim that the most important reason that plagiarism cannot be tolerated lies in the essence of the concept of a university as it is rooted in the Western cultural tradition. The main contribution of this paper is in providing firsthand insight into students' views on some of the delicate questions related to student plagiarism. However, this paper presents views from both sides of the question, including the views of staff members. This paper is quite unique in that it is coauthored by students who provide independent comments and recommendations. (Contains 5 figures.)
