Plagiarism across Europe and beyond: conference proceedings, June 10–12, 2015 Brno, Czech Republic
The international conference Plagiarism Across Europe and Beyond aims to be a forum for sharing best practices and experiences by addressing issues of academic integrity. The conference brings together several prominent names in the field of academic integrity from all over the world. With regards to the crucial role of ethics and honesty in academic work, universities are in need of more effective policies against infringements of academic standards. The conference therefore aims to contribute to the standardization of consistent and transparent approaches to issues of academic integrity from several perspectives, such as detection and prevention of plagiarism, the impact of text-matching software, types of plagiarism, teaching norms of best practice, and institutional and national standards. As academic integrity is considered to be culturally bound, standardizing policies and practices related to ethical issues requires a careful examination of several related cases from different countries.
