What is ‘Academic Integrity’ ?

Here are two university definitions on the key principles and values of academic integrity:

When considering academic integrity, the discussion tends to revolve around cheating, plagiarism, dishonesty, fraud, and other academic malpractice and how best to prevent these behaviors. A more productive approach entails a focus on promoting the positive values of honesty, trust, fairness, respect, responsibility, and courage as the intrinsically motivated drivers for ethical academic practice. (International Center for Academic Integrity, 2019).

Academic misconduct is any type of cheating that occurs in relation to a formal academic exercise. The University takes all reported incidences of academic misconduct seriously and seeks to ensure that they are dealt with efficiently and appropriately. Examples are plagiarism, collusion, falsification, cheating, deceit, personation. (Edinburgh University, 2019)
