The Three Principles of Academic Honesty

  1. When you say you did the work yourself, you actually did it.
  2. When you rely on others’ work, you cite it. When you use their words, you quote them openly and accurately, and you cite them, too.
  3. When you present research materials, you present them fairly
    and truthfully. That’s true whether the research involves data, documents, or the writings of other scholars.
