Resources from EKU Libraries to assist students in avoiding academic dishonesty/plagiarism

Academic Integrity

What is Academic Integrity/Academic Dishonesty?

“Plagiarism occurs when a student represents work taken from another source as his or her own.  It is imperative that a student give credit to information, words, ideas, and images that are integrated into his or her own work” 

Anyone who knowingly assists in any form of academic dishonesty shall be considered as responsible as the student who accepts such assistance and shall be subject to the same sanctions.
