Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The Special Issue will critically examine the research on the academic integrity of students in higher education. Critical examination includes not only describing results, but contextualizing results withing the larger field. What do the results say about what is well established, and not well established in the field? What results may be relevant to efforts to reduce academic misconduct (AM), and what results may be less helpful? What is the quality of the research on this field within different subtopics? Where should the research be going next, and why? What new issues is the field facing? Why are these issues important? How should they be addressed? To this end, we encourage the submission of manuscripts reflecting a wide range of research methods, including qualitative, quantitative, mixed methods, meta-analyses, and systematic reviews.

The following list of topics is intended to be suggestive, not exhaustive:

  • What are the relationships between the recent pandemic and AM?
  • How is the emergence of artificial intelligence applied to education tasks an affordance and/or threat to student learning and AM?
  • What do we know about the effectiveness of interventions to reduce AM, as well as the quality of that work?
  • What do we know about motivation for committing AM, and to what extent are these patterns helpful in reducing AM?
  • What do we know about student characteristics as predictors of AM, and to what extent are these patterns helpful in reducing AM?
  • What do we know about contextual variables as predictors of AM, and to what extent are these patterns helpful in reducing AM?
