Academic Integrity

Holmes Institute is committed to ensuring and upholding Academic Integrity, as Academic Integrity is integral to maintaining academic quality and the reputation of Holmes’ graduates. Accordingly, all assessment tasks need to comply with academic integrity guidelines. Table 1 identifies the six categories of Academic Integrity breaches. If you have any questions about Academic Integrity issues related to your assessment tasks, please consult your lecturer or tutor for relevant referencing guidelines and support resources. Many of these resources can also be found through the Study Sills link on Blackboard.

Academic Integrity breaches are a serious offence punishable by penalties that may range from deduction of marks, failure of the assessment task or unit involved, suspension of course enrolment, or cancellation of course enrolment.

Table 1: Six categories of Academic Integrity breaches

PlagiarismReproducing the work of someone else without attribution. When a student submits their own work on multiple occasions this is known as self-plagiarism.
CollusionWorking with one or more other individuals to complete an assignment, in a way that is not authorised.
CopyingReproducing and submitting the work of another student, with or without their knowledge. If a student fails to take reasonable precautions to prevent their own original work from being copied, this may also be considered an offence.
ImpersonationFalsely presenting oneself, or engaging someone else to present as oneself, in an in-person examination.
Contract cheatingContracting a third party to complete an assessment task, generally in exchange for money or other manner of payment.
Data fabrication and falsificationManipulating or inventing data with the intent of supporting false conclusions, including manipulating images.

HI6036 IS Strategy And Innovation Assessment Design – Adapted Harvard Referencing

Holmes has been implementing as a pilot program using a revised/adapted Harvard approach to referencing. The following guidelines apply:

  • Reference sources in assignments are limited to sources that provide full-text access to the source’s content for lecturers and markers.
  • The Reference list should be located on a separate page at the end of the essay and titled: References.
  • It should include the details of all the in-text citations, arranged alphabetically A-Z by author surname. In addition, it MUST include a hyperlink to the full text of the cited reference source. For example;

P Hawking, B McCarthy, A Stein (2004), Second Wave ERP Education, Journal of Information Systems Education, Fall, http://jise.org/Volume15/n3/JISEv15n3p327.pdf

  • All assignments will require additional in-text reference details, which will consist of the surname of the author/authors or name of the authoring body, year of publication, page number of content, the paragraph where the content can be found.

For example;

“The company decided to implement a enterprise wide data warehouse business intelligence strategies (Hawking et al, 2004, p3(4)).”

Non-Adherence to Referencing Guidelines

Where students do not follow the above guidelines:

  1. Students who submit assignments that do not comply with the referencing guidelines will receive a 10% penalty.
  2. Students who submit assignments in which the citations are “fake” will be reported for academic misconduct.

IS Strategy Assignment Description:

You are expected to complete a critique and conduct a literature review to discuss a contemporary issue which an IS professional may experience and identify appropriate approaches to address this issue. The topic is “The impact of design thinking on innovation and growth in SMEs”. You need to search in the literature and find at least ten (10) state-of-the-art (not older than last 5 years) academic research papers (references) related to this topic. (Academic papers can be found in ProQuest. ProQuest instruction can be found in below. Please contact Liberian if you have further question).

A draft of the research paper (key points/headings) will be submitted in Week 07 whereby each group can receive feedback.

Group presentation should be recorded online through a Zoom session or any other video conferencing app and upload with the final report at week 13. Both “presentation slide” and “the face of presenter” should be in the recorded video. Each group should submit the final research paper in

the Blackboard by Week 13. ProQuest login:

The Draft report submission structure is as follow:

What you need to submit for Draft submission:

  1. Assignment File: You need to submit the draft version of your assignment in week 07. You need to introduce your 10 references and, in few sentences, describe why you have selected that reference and why it is relevant to topic.

DRAFT STRUCTURE:

  • Introduction: State the purpose and objectives of the report.
    • Discussion: Site the references, and the reason you have selected that reference:
  • Reference No 1: <Cite it thoroughly> Why it is relevant to the topic
  • Reference No 2: <Cite it thoroughly> Why it is relevant to the topic
  • Reference No 3: <Cite it thoroughly> Why it is relevant to the topic

10. Reference No 10: <Cite it thoroughly>

Why it is relevant to the topic

  • Conclusion: Summarise your findings, consolidating and drawing attention to the main points of the report.
    • Referencing: reference sources must be cited in the text of the report, and listed appropriately at the end in a reference list using Harvard referencing style.

2. Academic References: The Holmes referencing requirement is complying with the Harvard Referencing Style and provides the Hyperlink to the references in the reference list. As students have already been notified regarding this policy (you can find it in the Announcement as well), those who submit assignments that do not comply with the referencing guidelines have received 10% penalty.

The final report submission structure is as follow:

What you need to submit for final submission:

  1. Assignment File: You need to submit the final version of your assignment in Week 13. The final submission must comply with the draft structure and draw heavily from the key references. The structure of the final submission is headings and in discussion critically analyse each reference and discuss how these references reflecting the proposed topic.

REPORT STRUCTURE:

  • Introduction: State the purpose and objectives of the report.
    • Discussion: Discuss the references, and critically analyse them and discuss how they reflect the proposed topic. It should reflect this information for each paper:

What is the research question or research gap? What is the research methodology? How they collect data? How they analyse data? What is the result of the research?

  1. Reference No 1: <Cite it thoroughly>

  • Conclusion: Summarise your findings, consolidating and drawing attention to the main points of the report.
    • Referencing: reference sources must be cited in the text of the report, and listed appropriately at the end in a reference list using Harvard referencing style.

PLEASE NOTE:

  • All HI6036 IS Strategy And Innovation assignments must be submitted electronically ONLY, uploaded to Blackboard and Submission of SafeAssign. Submission deadlines are strictly enforced and a late submission incurs penalties.
  • DO NOT SHARE YOUR ASSIGNMENT WITH OTHER STUDENTS under no circumstances even after the deadline and after you submitted it in the Blackboard or even after you have marked. If there will be any similarity detected by SafeAssign or the marker, it is an academic misconduct case and BOTH of the students will not be marked and reported to the institution for further investigation.
  • Your document should be a single word or OpenOffice document containing your report.
  • All submissions will be submitted through the safeAssign facility in Blackboard. Submission boxes linked to SafeAssign will be set up in the Units Blackboard Shell. Assignments not submitted through these submission links will not be considered.
  • Submissions must be made by the due date and time (which will be in the session detailed above) and determined by your Unit coordinator. Submissions made after the due date and time will be penalized per day late (including weekend days) according to Holmes Institute policies.
  • The SafeAssign similarity score will be used in determining the level, if any, of plagiarism. SafeAssign will check conference web-sites, Journal articles, the Web and your own class members submissions for plagiarism. You can see your SafeAssign similarity score (or match) when you submit your assignment to the appropriate drop-box. If this is a concern you will have a chance to change your assignment and resubmit. However, resubmission is only allowed prior to the

submission due date and time. After the due date and time have elapsed your assignment will be graded as late. Submitted assignments that indicate a high level of plagiarism will be penalized according to the Holmes Academic Misconduct policy, there will be no exceptions. Thus, plan early and submit early to take advantage of the resubmission feature. You can make multiple submissions, but please remember we grade only the last submission, and the date and time you submitted will be taken from that submission.
