Call for a Thematic series on contract cheating – International Journal for Educational Integrity (SpringerOpen)

Last modified: May 29, 2017

Deadline for submissions: 30th June 2017
Although ‘contract cheating is not a word most students are familiar with, they might be more acquainted with the practice itself. ‘Contract cheating occurs when students employ or use a third party to undertake their assessed work for them’. While technically it is not a new phenomenon, the global rise of contract cheating is. In particular the emergence of commercial providers for ‘academic services’ -who advertise and reach students by the use of social media and other online platforms- makes it necessary for the academic community to take the problem more seriously. It has lead SpringerOpen to announce a thematic series to explore the phenomenon of contract cheating and to design appropriate responses to it. Interested to participate? Take a look at the SpringerOpen website and don’t forget to carefully read the submission instructions.
