Academic integrity covers the standards of honesty and trust involved in scholarship of the discipline and the conventions used to aknowledge the source of ideas and data.
Plagiarism or submitting other's work as one's own is wholly unacceptable and is treated by the University of Nottingham as an act of Academic Misconduct, comparable to cheating in exams.
Induction is a useful place to tell students about academic integrity and plagiarism but ongoing academic development is usually how students best came to understand and use the disciplinary conventions.
If plagiarism is discovered, it not only makes the student concerned liable to serious penalties, but raises questions about personal integrity. However, sometimes what appears to be intentional plagiarism can be the result of failing to follow standard methods of acknowledging the source of words, ideas and diagrams in work. In cases where Academic Misconduct arises as a result of poor academic practice, schools may apply penalties as deemed approriate in each case.
