Introduction Academic integrity within the education is taken to be one of the most significant aspects in the literature review section. It refers to the utilization of knowledge that requires showing morality, honesty as well as transparency. According to Bretag (2016), the “Rule Compliance Strategy” is one of the most famous ways to combat plagiarism. In the Rule Compliance Strategy, plagiarism is regarded as criminal acts and thus, all students have to implement these rules and recognize that the work material is owned by another individual, and failure to observe these rules would result in consequences and actions. So, academic integrity is adhering to the rules and policy laid down by the school and not engaging in academic dishonesty. Drawing from Bretag (2016), academic dishonesty is a developing issue among students for good grades. It happens in elementary school, middle school, high school, college, master’s level and doctorate level programs.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
