Conference: Plagiarism across Europe and Beyond

International Plagiarism across Europe and Beyond Conference

9-11 May 2018, Ephesus, Turkey


Dear Colleague,


It is our pleasure to invite you to the ‘4th Plagiarism across Europe and Beyond Conference,’ which will be jointly organized by Canakkale Onsekiz Mart University, Mendel University in Brno, and the European Network for Academic Integrity in Ephesus, Turkey, between 9-11 May 2018. The conference aims to provide a forum for sharing best practices and experiences by addressing issues of academic integrity. We hope to bring several prominent names in the field of academic integrity together from all over the world, beginning with our keynote speakers Tracey Bretag, Lex Bouter, Teddi Fishman, and David Thornton, as well as our plenary speakers Tomáš Foltýnek and Irene Glendinning.


With regards to the crucial role of ethics and honesty in academic work, universities are in need of more effective policies for fostering academic integrity. The conference therefore aims to contribute to the standardization of consistent and transparent approaches to issues of academic integrity from several perspectives. 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. Due to its geographic location, Turkey bridges not only the continents of Europe and Asia but also various cultures, making it a perfect location for a conference that brings together distinguished researchers from all over the world.


Note that a limited number of ENAI Awards and Punjab Higher Education Council Awards are available as financial support for delegates who apply by the 30 November 2017 deadline. Please visit the “Fees & Awards” section of our website for more information on how to apply.


Additionally, there will be three publication opportunities for the full texts of papers presented at the conference. The International Journal for Educational Integrity, which is published by Springer Open, will publish a special issue for selected papers. In addition, an edited international book will be published by Peter Lang and an e-book will be published by Nobel Press. Please note that all three publication options are subject to rigorous peer review.


The Plagiarism across Europe and Beyond Conference aims to be a truly international forum. In 2017, the conference convened 112 delegates from 49 countries, and we expect the number of delegates joining from different countries to be even higher in 2018. Embracing the spirit of international cooperation, the 2018 conference organization consists of a collaborative team of academicians from 22 different countries forming its committees and scientific boards.


We hope you will join us in Ephesus, Turkey, in 2018. As this will mark the first time the conference is being held outside its birthplace of Brno, your attendance at the conference would be a great honor to us. We would like to express our gratitude for your interest, and we look forward to seeing you next year.


Yours sincerely,


Conference Organizing Committee
