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 Property’s 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.
