Avoiding Academic Misconduct, Sloppy Scholarship, and Plagiarism

The resources here include handouts that define the terms used in discussions of academic integrity, and ask you to consider what the consequences might be for unethical practices. We also ask you to assess whether writing that breaks those rules “works” for the situations they were used in, or whether they are worth the money one might pay. There’s a handy page that breaks down documenting and citing works in your essays, along with some notes on the legal implications of using images and songs in your work or even posting them to social media.
