Call for Submissions for a Special Issue: Academic Integrity: Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion


Canadian Perspectives on Academic Integrity is pleased to announce a Call for Submissions for a Special Issue: Academic Integrity: Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion.

Focus and Scope

Canadian Perspectives on Academic Integrity, an open source journal, provides Canadian practitioners and researchers working in the area of academic integrity with a venue to share experiences, insights, and research findings, and to elevate awareness and mobilize knowledge about issues relating to academic integrity in Canada. 

An important topic that has not received sufficient attention in the literature and in conversations amongst higher education professionals is the intersection between academic integrity and equity, diversity, and inclusion (EDI). We want to create space to hear voices from those who are often underrepresented within academia, including Black, Indigenous, and People of Colour (BIPOC), members of LGBT2SQ+ community, persons with disabilities, and English as an Additional Langauge (EAL) learners and scholars.

We invite you to share your perspectives, experiences, and expertise as related, but not limited, to the following:

  • exploring what academic integrity means outside the dominant (largely western) academic culture,
  • creation of resources to promote academic integrity to a diversity of student populations,
  • development of professional development opportunities for academic staff in various roles to promote academic integrity that is inclusive of other perspectives,
  • observed discrimination or systemic barriers in academic misconduct case management and related policies, or
  • intitiatives to reduce discimination or systemic barriers in academic misconduct case management.

Submission Details

Submissions must be by or led by practioners and researchers at Canadian educational institutions with an e-mail address from that Canadian educational institution. Independent scholars without a Canadian institutional address should contact the editor before submitting a manuscript.

Submissions can vary in length with the minimum length being 500 words, excluding abstract, keywords, and references. The preferred documentation style for manuscripts is APA 7. Manuscripts should undergo spelling and grammar checks before submission. Manuscripts should be submitted electronically through the journal’s online submission website.

Practitioner articles will be reviewed by the co-editors prior to final decision. Academics/researchers who wish their manuscripts to undergo blind or double-blind peer-review should indicate this upon submission.

Submission Deadline. The deadline for submission deadline is October 19, 2020.

We hope you will consider submitting your paper to the Canadian Perspectives on Academic Integrity.
