In recent years, breaches of academic integrity have attracted the attention of a large number of involved stakeholders: Academics, PhD students, Researchers, HEI administrators, Editorial Boards of Journals and/or Conference proceedings, the Press and through that the public. It is often stated that there is an increase in academic misconduct incidences and this can be attributed to number of contributing factors. Some of them are well defined, while some others are still under investigation.
In this Summer School, we will look into policies and best practices, and use e-tools, case studies and lab sessions to help participants limit academic misconduct in their institutions and to ensure that confirmed offenders will receive constructive support to avoid misconducts in the future. In addition, we will help PhD students and/or junior faculty become aware of contextual issues and follow best procedures in relation to the following topics:
• Plagiarism Deterrence
• Contract Cheating Avoidance
• Predatory Journals: Limiting their attractiveness
• Developing paraphrasing skills
• Open Access Repositories: Advantages and Implications
• Intellectual Property Rights and Open Resources
• Ethics in Academia and Beyond
• Ethical Research Practices
• Information Systems for Academic Integrity
• Tools for developing reference lists
• Recruiting and Hiring Processes for junior faculty
• Corruption and Bribery in Academia and ways to limit it
• GDPR and its implication in Academia
The Summer School will employ experiential learning methodologies including PBL, workshops, hands on seminars, case studies, focus groups and panel discussions. Lectures will be selectively included in the schedule. The Summer School will also include a field trip to enhance students’ learning experience. An accompanying social agenda will enhance appreciation of the local culture.
