Academic Integrity

Academic integrity is fundamental to the pursuit of knowledge.

All members of the Adelphi community are expected to abide by the Code of Academic Honesty and the Code of Conduct for Students. To promote academic integrity, the University has implemented Turnitin, a Web-based plagiarism detection tool.

Turnitin instantly identifies paper containing material that is not original by comparing submitted documents against Turnitin’s extensive digital repository of material that might be plagiarized material including:

  • 4.5 billion pages of current and archived Internet documents
  • millions of books, newspapers, and journals
  • over 10 million student papers already submitted to Turnitin.

Turnitin offers several features that allow it to be used as both a tool to prevent plagiarism and promote academic integrity. Turnitin has the capability to provide customized orginality reports to the faculty which highlight any matches and link them to their source. The faculty reserves the right to determine whether plagiarism has occured.

To find out how to get started, go to Turnitin instructions for faculty or tips for faculty on preventing plagiarism.
