A noun followed by a colon usually represents a list of attributes of the noun. In this case, I don't know what they are trying to say. 'Academic integrity' is an attribute, but I Googled Turnitin and found it to be an anti-plagarism application.

I'll take a guess that you are trying to write a citation for an article from a publication at Walden University, and that the article's title is "Academic Integrity & Turnitin."  Your school likely requires that you use a certain style guide for all papers.  First, you need to know which style that is.  The style guide will tell you how to properly write a citation.  Many universities have their own resources and tools, including citation generators.  If not, there are free ones online.  Someone else has posted a link to a reliable one before, but I don't know what that is.
