Integrity and ethics

This section is all finding out about the importance of acting with honesty and responsibility in your academic life. You will be required to present accurate information in your research project. You will need to follow the rules and conventions of academic professional work by acknowledging all sources of information that you draw upon in your academic work.  You will need to obtain permission to use other academic work which is protected by copyright law and where appropriate and give credit to the author or creator of the work. Where research involves human or animal subjects you will need to ensure that this is done ethically and with appropriate permissions.

The next section is all about academic integrity.
