1ACADEMIC INTEGRITY AND PLAGIARISMIntroductionAcademic integrity is important for the students and researchers to createoriginal and high standard academic and research works. Plagiarism is the process ofunethically using other people’s work and using it as own. There are several benefitsof academic integrity which if followed will help the student and researchers to excelin their academic fields.3 points of academic integrity and 3 types of plagiarism3 points of academic integrity are as follows:-Being honest in research endeavour and giving credits to other for their work is animportant feature of academic integrity (Macfarlane, Zhang & Pun, 2014).The student or the researcher must trust the value of his or her own intellectualcapacity and must not unethically borrow ideas.Accepting responsibility of one’s own academic work and bearing theconsequences is a part of academic integrity and endeavour.3 types of PlagiarismDirect Plagiarism- This is the way of plagiarising someone else’s work bytranscription of every word without attributing the work to the author (Angélil-Carter, 2014).Example is, copying a section of a research and pasting it withoutacknowledgement.Self-Plagiarism- This is submitting or presenting someone’s own work which hasbeen already submitted or utilised.Example is,creating a particular paper andsubmitting it, and again submitting it in another test as an original work.Accidental Plagiarism- When the author mistakes in quoting a source or forgets tomention the source or unintentionally writes similar phrases.Example is when the

Therefore work with academic integrity will help the student inlearning.Consequences:-The research work is more creative and more informative, as the work is originaland not taken from any other sources.The researcher is better knowledgeable. This is because the researcher takes moreefforts in learning about the subject and understanding the various aspects of it.For a student with unquestionable academic integrity, the opportunity of scoringmore is greater.3 Consequences of Academic Integrity ViolationThe first consequence is a degraded reputation for the student or the researcher. Ifit is known to the public that the researcher has been borrowing from othersources then the person’s credibility will be questioned.The academic work will also lose credibility. An original work is always betterand more valued. A work heavily inspired or borrowed is having lesser value thanthe original works.
