L'urgence de l'intégrité académique
Countering malpractice - in higher education as in research - and strengthening academic integrity is urgent. For our knowledge civilisation is under threat, both from new models of knowledge production and from the shamelessness of knowledge offenders. The members of the International Institute for Research and Action on Academic Fraud and Plagiarism (IRAFPA) have been conducting theoretical and applied research for more than fifteen years to improve the knowledge structuring the concept of academic integrity. But this will not be enough. We need to open a real debate and invite all actors of the academic world and its stakeholders to participate, so that the integrity sciences movement develops and takes root in the daily practices of everyone. The book proposes a construction of integrity sciences in six major themes. Each theme is introduced by a renowned researcher from the fields of science, medicine, journalism, archaeology, management sciences or international diplomacy. Within each theme, five chapters weave the fabric of a fundamental debate. The authors come from more than ten different countries, because integrity knows no borders. They are theologians, philosophers, psychoanalysts, psychologists, economists, linguists, sociologists, archaeologists, lawyers, engineers, professors of ethics, bioethics, artificial intelligence, educational sciences, performing arts, humanities, nuclear and particle physics, ethnology, history, journalists, diplomats, business leaders, physicians, translators, political scientists and members of civil society. They wanted this book to be a reference tool for all those who want to act without wasting time. The reader - whether a researcher, a doctoral student, a teacher, a manager of a higher education institution, or a library manager - will find precise answers and a call to action.
