Academic Integrity & Plagiarism Defined

Academic integrity and plagiarism are concerns of the utmost importance to university faculty, administrators, librarians, academic advisors, and writing center and tutoring staff. The short, straightforward definitions of academic integrity and plagiarism are meant to assist persons interested in understanding more about these issues.

Academic Integrity:
Most sources define academic integrity (or academic honesty) as the foundation for academic life. It is the manner in which you behave in an academic environment when you are researching, writing a paper or creating a project. The fundamental five values in this academic process are honesty, trust, respect, fairness, and responsibility. Academic integrity is the commitment to live by these values. Plagiarism is an aspect of academic integrity in that using another's ideas, words, theories, illustrations, opinions or facts without credit is dishonest.
Using or stealing someone else's ideas, words or products as your own ideas, without giving credit to the author or originator, is considered plagiarism. Summarizing or paraphrasing the words or ideas of another person without credit is also considered plagiarism. When using or quoting the words of another person, it must always be acknowledged.

The ASU Library acknowledges the twenty-three Native Nations that have inhabited this land for centuries. Arizona State University's four campuses are located in the Salt River Valley on ancestral territories of Indigenous peoples, including the Akimel O’odham (Pima) and Pee Posh (Maricopa) Indian Communities, whose care and keeping of these lands allows us to be here today. ASU Library acknowledges the sovereignty of these nations and seeks to foster an environment of success and possibility for Native American students and patrons. We are advocates for the incorporation of Indigenous knowledge systems and research methodologies within contemporary library practice. ASU Library welcomes members of the Akimel O’odham and Pee Posh, and all Native nations to the Library.
