Here is the article The Fundamental Values of Academic Integrity: Honesty, Trust, Respect, Fairness, Responsibility.
Duke Univ., Durham, NC. Center for Academic Integrity.
The Center for Academic Integrity defines academic integrity as a commitment, even in the face of adversity, to five fundamental values: honesty, trust, fairness, respect, and responsibility. From these values come principles of behavior that enable academic communities to translate ideals into action. This essay discusses each of these values and poses some questions institutions and administrators should ask themselves about these values in operation on their campus. Seven recommendations for academic integrity have been developed that are appropriate to every institution of higher education: (1) have clear academic integrity statements, policies, and procedures that are consistently implemented; (2) inform and education the entire community about academic integrity policies and procedures; (3) promulgate and practice theses policies and procedures rigorously from the top down and support those who uphold them; (4) have a clear, accessible, and equitable system to adjudicate suspected violations of policy; (5) develop programs to promote academic integrity among all segments of the campus community; (6) be alert to trends in higher education and campus technology; and (7) regularly assess the effectiveness of polices and procedures and take steps to improve and rejuvenate them.
