The International Center of Academic Integrity (ICAI) defines academic integrity as:
"a commitment, even in the face of adversity, to six fundamental values:
From these values flow principles of behavior that enable academic communities to translate ideals into action."
As Turnitin mentions on its website, academic integrity is everyone's responsibility.
"Academic integrity goes beyond avoiding cheating or plagiarizing. Academic integrity is also about maintaining excellent academic standards in teaching and curriculum and fostering impeccable research processes. Academic integrity requires full institutional and instructor effort as well as the vigilance of individuals in the learning process. Not only should students not cheat, but educators offer accurate assessments, and institutions support honest research practices and when applicable, fair discipline."
