Academic Honesty for Students

"Academic honesty boils down to three simple but powerful principles:

  • When you say you did the work yourself, you actually did it.
  • When you rely on someone else's work, you cite it. When you use their words, you quote them openly and accurately, and you cite them, too.
  • When you present research materials, you present them fairly and truthfully. That's true whether the research involves data, documents, or the writings of other scholars" (3).
