Academic integrity is based on openness, integrity and accountability principles. On the contrary, academic dishonesty is therefore regarded as cheating in academic activities and is visible in research ethics, principles of education institutions, value systems of students, pupils and of academia in general. TI Lithuania is active in initiating academic integrity activities in order to ensure sustainable implementation of anti-corruption initiatives around the country in the long run. Also, research reveals the correlation between the integrity standards that students apply in education institutions and their ethical standards applied in their work placements in the future. The study presents several ways to counter corruption in academia and also sets recommendations for the Ministry of Education and Science, universities, colleges and high schools in Lithuania.
