Academic Integrity Practice: The View from India


Academic integrity practice in India, unlike in the west and parts of the Asia Pacific region, is still in its infancy. A ready-to-handle countrywide database of academic integrity in terms of policy, planning, and implementation remains elusive. While the issue is of concern to sections of teachers, parents, policy makers, and academic administrators, organized efforts at the institutional level are yet to make an impact on the Indian educational scene. It must be admitted that though belated, the drive toward academic integrity in India, largely equated with anti-plagiarism practices, is a welcome development receiving increasing support among the different stakeholders. There is a realization that there is a need to move quickly on this front if Indian higher education is to play its rightful role at the global level.
