Resources from Other Institutions - For Students

Many schools have developed their own resources about academic integrity; others draw upon excellent resources that are widely available online.  We offer a small selection of web-based resources here, but we would be pleased to expand this page. Feel free to send us other materials that you have found helpful.  Examples of helpful websites or publicly available electronic resources may be sent to Lisa Laskin at the Office of Undergraduate Education,

Academic Integrity
At Princeton University, students reference this guidebook that offers insight and suggestions on everything from “When to Cite Sources” and “Examples of Plagiarism” to “Working Habits that Work.” This Princeton handbook also addresses other topical questions, like the use of electronic sources and how to cite common knowledge, in academic integrity.

Plagiarism – What Is It?
The University of Pennsylvania has a clear and comprehensive online guide to help students understand different kinds of plagiarism through examples.    

Computer Science and the Honor Code
Computer Science courses bring their own challenges to the area of academic integrity, as the many in the field seek to foster collaboration while supporting the submission of original work.  Stanford University’s CS department offers suggestions for producing code with integrity.

Academic Integrity: A Handbook for Students
Massachusetts Institute of Technology (like Princeton University and University of Pennsylvania) has a thorough guide for students, which includes specific examples of academic integrity across different disciplines and assignment types.
