    in my own opinion, intellectual honesty is the virtue of a writer to write original stories, and if he copies someone else's work, he will cite sources. in other words, it's when a writer does NOT commit plagiarism does that help?

    Intellectual honesty is an applied method of problem solving in academia, characterized by an unbiased, honest attitude, which can be demonstrated in a number of different ways, including but not limited to: - One's personal beliefs do not interfere with the pursuit of truth; - Relevant facts and information are not purposefully omitted even when such things may contradict one's hypothesis; - Facts are presented in an unbiased manner, and not twisted to give misleading impressions or to support one view over another; - References are acknowledged where possible, and plagiarism is avoided Harvard ethicist Louis M. Guenin describes the "kernel" of intellectual honesty to be "a virtuous disposition to eschew deception when given an incentive for deception."
