Integrity, accountability, and responsibility are important words to understand while engaging in ethical research. To be a successful researcher, you must conduct yourself in an ethical manner. Failure to do so can have harsh repercussions, for not only you, but your institution as well. Failing an assignment, expulsion from an institution, and a diminished institutional reputation are just a few of the injuries that can be sustained. Responsible use of resources is paramount to ensuring that you are following academic protocol and guidelines. Academic integrity requires an understanding of plagiarism, the rules of proper citation, and how to give credit to scholars.
