About this Site
Funded by the University of Maryland University College (UMUC) and the Alfred P. Sloan
Foundation, the Virtual Academic Integrity Laboratory (VAIL) is a
resource on academic integrity for the higher education community developed by the Center for Intellectual
Property at UMUC.
VAIL consists of several projects that provide the higher education community with
comprehensive resources and tools that promote academic integrity at colleges and
universities. These tools and resources include the assessment of plagiarism detection
tools, instruction on preventing and detecting plagiarism, and documentation on the best
policies and practices that promote academic integrity. VAIL is part of the Center for
Intellectual Propertys program to encourage and facilitate academic integrity.
VAIL is an online laboratory that facilitates learning, research, discussion, and
innovation regarding academic integrity issues that face the 21st century classroom.
Faculty, administrators, and students are encouraged to use VAIL resources and share their
experiences and ideas with one another. VAIL seeks to bridge the gap between the concept
of academic integrity and its application and enforcement in the digital age.
