    The Paradox of Faculty Attitudes Toward Student Violations of Academic Integrity.Paul Douglas MacLeod & Sarah Elaine Eaton - 2020 - Journal of Academic Ethics 18 (4):347-362.
    This study investigated faculty attitudes towards student violations of academic integrity in Canada using a qualitative review of 17 universities’ academic integrity/dishonesty policies combined with a quantitative survey of faculty members’ attitudes and behaviours around academic integrity and dishonesty. Results showed that 53.1% of survey respondents see academic dishonesty as a worsening problem at their institutions. Generally, they believe their respective institutional policies are sound in principle but fail in application. Two of the major factors identified by faculty as contributing (...)

    Strengthening the Research Agenda of Educational Integrity in Canada: A Review of the Research Literature and Call to Action. [REVIEW]Rachael Ileh Edino & Sarah Elaine Eaton - 2018 - International Journal for Educational Integrity 14 (1).
    We present findings of a literature review on the topic of educational integrity in the Canadian context. Our search revealed 56 sources, published between 1992 and 2017. A historical overview showed a rise in the number of scholarly publications in recent years, but with an overall limited number of research contributions. We identified three major themes in the literature: empirical research; prevention and professional development; and other. Our analysis showed little evidence of sustained research programs in Canada over time or (...)

    An Institutional Self-Study of Text-Matching Software in a Canadian Graduate-Level Engineering Program.Sarah Elaine Eaton, Katherine Crossman, Laleh Behjat, Robin Michael Yates, Elise Fear & Milana Trifkovic - 2020 - Journal of Academic Ethics 18 (3):263-282.
    This institutional self-study investigated the use of text-matching software to prevent plagiarism by students in a Canadian university that did not have an institutional license for TMS at the time of the study. Assignments from a graduate-level engineering course were analyzed using iThenticate®. During the initial phase of the study, similarity scores from the first student assignments were collected to determine a baseline level of textual similarity. Students were then offered an educational intervention workshop on academic integrity. Another set of (...)

    Academic Integrity and Contract Cheating Policy Analysis of Colleges in Ontario, Canada.Emma J. Thacker, Jennifer Miron, Sarah Elaine Eaton & Brenda M. Stoesz - 2019 - International Journal for Educational Integrity 15 (1).
    In this study, we analyzed the academic integrity policies of colleges in Ontario, Canada, casting a specific lens on contract cheating. We extracted data from 28 individual documents from 22-publicly-funded colleges including policies and procedures and code of conduct. We analyzed the characteristics of the documents from three perspectives: document type and titles; policy language; and policy principles. Then we examined five core elements of the documentation including access; approach; responsibility; detail; and support. Key findings revealed that specific and direct (...)

    Interinstitutional Perspectives on Contract Cheating: A Qualitative Narrative Exploration From Canada.Silvia Rossi, Margaret A. Toye, Nancy Chibry & Sarah Elaine Eaton - 2019 - International Journal for Educational Integrity 15 (1).
    This paper explores contract cheating from the perspectives of researchers at three post-secondary institutions in Alberta, Canada, describing their efforts to develop and advance awareness of, interventions against, and responses to contract cheating at their respective institutions. Contract cheating is when a third party produces or completes academic work for a student, and the student then presents the work as their own. The student might have personal connections to the third party, or the student might pay a fee and outsource (...)

    New Priorities for Academic Integrity: Equity, Diversity, Inclusion, Decolonization and Indigenization.Sarah Elaine Eaton - 2022 - International Journal for Educational Integrity 18 (1).
    The topics of equity, diversity, inclusion, decolonization, and Indigenization have been neglected in academic and research integrity. In this article, I offer examples of how these issues are being addressed and argue that academic integrity networks and organizations ought to develop intentional strategies for equity, diversity and inclusion, and decolonization in terms of leadership, scholarship, and professional opportunities. I point out that existing systems perpetuate the conditions that allow for overrepresentation of reporting among particular student groups including international students, students (...)

    Academic Integrity Education Across the Canadian Higher Education Landscape.Jennifer Miron, Sarah Elaine Eaton, Laura McBreairty & Heba Baig - 2021 - Journal of Academic Ethics 19 (4):441-454.
    The purpose of this article is to understand how academic integrity educational tutorials are administered across Canadian higher education. Results are shared from a survey of publicly funded Canadian higher education institutions, including universities and colleges, across ten provinces where English is the primary language of instruction. The survey contained 29 items addressing institutional demographic details, as well as academic integrity education questions. Results showed that academic integrity tutorials are inconsistent across Canadian higher education, with further differences evident within the (...)

    Contract Cheating in Iran: An Overview of Key Issues and a Call to Action.Azimeh Takrimi, Reza Khojasteh Mehr & Sarah Elaine Eaton - forthcoming - Journal of Academic Ethics:1-19.
    In our descriptive exploratory qualitative study, we investigated the issue of contract cheating in Iranian higher education contexts. Through our analysis, we provide insights into measures taken in Iran to prevent contract cheating and mitigate its effects. Our study analyses secondary data including scholarly articles, published media, and the country’s current policies. Results showed that more empirical primary data from which to draw definitive conclusions is needed, and as such, developing an evidence-based body of knowledge about the prevalence and characteristics (...)
