Practicing Integrity

It is your responsibility as a student to conduct your research and document your process in the manner that adheres to the university’s standards of academic integrity.


Just as all communities have their own codes of behaviour, so too do academic communities. Different disciplines may have differing ways of acknowledging influences, sources, and ideas.


Your instructor is your best source of guidance on how you should document and acknowledge sources within the context of a particular assignment.
