Academic Integrity

"No matter how educated, talented, rich or cool you believe you are, how you treat people ultimately tells all. Integrity is everything." -Anon

You may be looking at this quote and wondering 'what does this have to do with research?'. As a researcher, and a student, integrity, and in particular academic integrity, is essential.
