Academic Integrity

Information on integrity, plagiarism, cheating, collusion, copyright and citation for students, and those who support them.

The academic enterprise at the University of Nottingham, whether scholarship, research or innovation, is based on the values of academic integrity, honesty and trust.

The University regards such acts as cheating, plagiarism and the fabrication of results as serious academic offences, which are unacceptable in a scholarly community dedicated to the pursuit of knowledge. The Academic Offences policy and procedure in the Quality Manual outlines the steps to be taken when an offence is suspected, and gives detail of the penalties which may be applied: http://www.nottingham.ac.uk/quality-manual/assessment/offences.htm

The following resources are provided for learners and those who support them, to provide information which distinguishes good practice from the cheating behaviours associated with plagiarism, copyright infrigement, collusion and collaboration.

The resource provides an interactive learning pathway for students, early stage researchers and tutors.
