Violations of academic integrity take many forms, including data falsification, lying to university officials, working with other students on projects or papers that are assigned as individual efforts, and using the same paper for more than one course.

This web guide focuses on one narrow aspect of academic integrity, namely plagiarism.  It  is intended to help students understand the customs of academic life relating to plagiarism and to help students use quotation and paraphrasing both effectively and honestly. There are five sections:

  • Intellectual Ownership
  • Common Knowledge Standard
  • Standard of Originality
  • Avoiding Plagiarism
  • Style Guides

By clicking on the tabs above, students can go through a series of exercises to test their knowledge.
