Academic integrity is honesty and responsibility in scholarship. Dishonesty in your academic writing and scholarship undermines your credibility and the ability of others to trust you with their work—and to trust you that your scholarship and research is your own work. Academic integrity is demonstrating responsibility and care about giving credit to others for their work and research, just as you would like to receive recognition and the appropriate credit for your work. Academic integrity is about reciprocal trust and honesty in all your academic pursuits.
In this week’s Blog, as you are introduced to the principle of academic integrity and examine the APA style of writing and formatting, while learning the specifics of scholarly writing, consider the accessibility of the resources and the ease or difficulty you experienced as you found and reviewed the resources.
Note: Blogs are conversational in nature and are intended to generate ideas and encourage discussion. Therefore, no APA citations of Learning Resources are required for your Blog posts. Your Blog posts need to be graduate-level from a grammar perspective.
