Academic Integrity

 ” What is right is often forgotten by what is convenient”
Bodie Thoene, author.

As young researchers and scholars, we are expected to conduct our work in accordance with principles of “academic integrity“. At some point in our studies – undergraduate or graduate – we are taught the basics about research ethics, often through idealized examples of what is considered right or wrong. We are told on countless occasions how serious “plagiarism” is. We submit our carefully-thought-out research proposals to the Ethics Board for review. We are taught by librarians and Professors how to cite other authors and properly reference ideas and findings, in order to differentiate between what is ours, and what is not.
