As a member of the academic community you have the opportunity to become a knowledgeable and successful member of society. With that opportunity comes the responsibility to learn how to act as a scholar, to learn how to acknowledge and build upon the work of others as you increase and demonstrate your understanding of the body of knowledge in your discipline.

In this unit we will consider the ethics of research, why it is important to act ethically, and how you can avoid academic dishonesty.
