Academic Integrity and Referencing

“Academic integrity means a commitment to act with honesty, trustworthiness, fairness, respect and responsibility in all academic work, and in professional practice.” (UniSA Academic Integrity Policy, p.3).

Hear from students on what Academic Integrity means to them and why it's important for your Uni work to be your own, like your fingerprint.

Referencing can help you demonstrate academic integrity in your assignments, but there are other actions and behaviours which are important as well.  Find out more about what is expected from you as a UniSA student and how you can demonstrate academic integrity throughout your degree.
