UG revises plagiarism policy to include AI

The University of Ghana has updated its academic integrity framework, with a particular focus on addressing plagiarism. In a notice signed by registrar Emelia Agyei Mensah and dated February 26, 2024, it was announced that the University Council and Academic Board have approved significant changes aimed at combating plagiarism and other forms of academic misconduct.

The revised policy, now known as the “Policy on Plagiarism and Other Academic Misconduct,” provides clear definitions of academic misconduct and outlines preventive measures and appropriate sanctions. One notable addition to the updated policy is the inclusion of Artificial Intelligence (AI) in academic work and research.

The University recognizes the growing use of AI and related technologies for academic assistance but emphasizes the importance of maintaining originality in scholarly pursuits. The use of AI or related tools that compromise the authenticity of academic work will not be tolerated under the new policy.

While the revised document has not been made public, the integration of AI in the plagiarism policy demonstrates the University’s proactive approach to addressing contemporary challenges in academic ethics. By embracing technological advancements while upholding the value of original thought and independent scholarship, the University aims to cultivate a culture of academic excellence and integrity among its community.

This forward-looking initiative reflects the University’s commitment to upholding the integrity of scholarly endeavors and adapting to the changing landscape of academic research. With the updated policy now in effect, stakeholders are encouraged to embrace these changes as part of a collective effort to preserve academic integrity and promote intellectual honesty within the University of Ghana.
