and publication information regarding the source.

study questions, research projects, online exams, etc) contains

Just one footnote here for your information:
Instructors are able to run plagiarism scans on any student papers about which they may be suspicious The scan programs - there are several available
- search through the entire internet, web, and all online resources to see if
there are any matches for plagiarized sentences, phrases, or paragraphs in that
paper anywhere on the internet. If there are, the programs report back to the
instructor where the matches for those sentences or paragraphs can be found.
