It was also surprising to learn that, common practices such as copying words without using quotation marks; putting an incorrect source of the information; or altering the order the order of words from another person’s work. I was also perplexed that productions of a work in which majority of the words are uplifted from another person’s is regarded as plagiarism regardless of whether such information is correctly cited or not.

The person who is writing academic papers, and what that person chooses to write about, as well as how they choose to write, will change them as well as others. Academia has recently recognized that in order for its institutions to change it is necessary to encourage students to draw more on their own "voice" within their writing so as to facilitate more inclusive and broader perspectives (Belenky, 1997).
In this paper we try to define what academic honesty is and its importance to the individual and to the social structure of the society.
