Intellectual Honesty.
Palmer, Louis H., Jr.
One of the principal aims of a quality education is a relationship of trust between a student and his teachers and peers. The student's signature on his work should indicate to his teachers that any indebtedness for materials--any word-for-word copying, paraphrasing, usage of "apt" terms, or any mosaic woven into his work from randomly-gathered statements--has been acceptably acknowledged and identified to clarify what is the student's own work and what has been borrowed from others. The student should acknowledge to what extent he has prepared and proofread his own papers, given or received help, and made use of tutors or other aids. He should understand that plagiarism in any form not only indicates a flagrant disregard for the ethical and moral code governing the welfare of the academic community and a serious breach of personal integrity, but also constitutes an ignorance of form, for which he will still be held responsible. (Included are examples which illustrate the misuse of source materials.) (JB)
