The International Center for Academic Integrity defines academic integrity as a commitment, even in the face of adversity, to six fundamental values: honesty, trust, fairness, respect, responsibility, and courage. From these values flow principles of behavior that enable academic communities to translate ideals to action. The Fundamental Values of Academic Integrity describes these core values in detail.
The original Fundamental Values of Academic Integrity booklet was published in 1999. In 2013, a task force revised the original version to include an updated sixth value: courage.
