As an international university, UIII applies universally applicable academic ethics standards in research and research writing.
- Academic ethics covers many things, such as how research procedures are to be performed, how the research is written under a standardized system that meticulously lists the sources, and how the research results can be accessed by other researchers.
- UIII should be pioneering the view that plagiarism of scientific works is an intellectual crime and that the perpetrator must be punishable by law, not just moral punishment. Serious sanctions should be strongly considered, for example, being fired
from functional positions. Thus, the Indonesian International Islamic University has clear rules or guidelines on plagiarism, so intellectual works produced by scholars in the Indonesian International Islamic University can avoid such as plagiarism.
