The European Network for Academic Integrity (ENAI) has announced its award winners for 2023, in connection with its annual conference at the University of Derby (UK). Honorees are nominated by their colleagues (within the organization or from without) for their outstanding contributions to the work of ENAI-promoting integrity in scholarly communities throughout Europe and beyond. Winners are selected by a panel of academic integrity experts, and recognized for their good work as well as the inspiration they provide.

The Award for Outstanding Activism
given for work with notable real-world impact. This year, our award winner is Artem Artyukhov (Sumy State University, Ukraine). In innovative ways, Dr Artyukhov promotes academic integrity at the international, national, and local levels, combining the roles of Head of the Ethics Committee at the Higher Education Quality Assurance (Ukraine), Head of the Group for Strengthening Academic Integrity and a Lecturer at the Sumy State University (Ukraine).

The Award for Exemplary Research recognizes academic integrity work, including that which identifies, evaluates, or explicates best practices, or investigates and/or describes new challenges. This year, that award goes to Martine Peters (Université du Québec en Outaouais, Canada). Martine Peters is a full professor in the Department of Educational Sciences at the Université du Québec en Outaouais in Canada and the Principal Investigator of the Partnership on University Plagiarism Prevention (PUPP) project.

Each year, ENAI recognizes the work of a student for distinguishing him or herself by contributing to the goals of ENAI in research, activism, and/or leadership. This year our honoree is Beatriz Moya (University of Calgary, Canada). Beatriz’s innovative research focuses on Academic Integrity in South America and strategies to improve current practices.

The Award for Outstanding Member celebrates the tremendous work that ENAI members do, for the membership, outreach, and the community at large. This year, that award goes to Salim Razi (Canakkale Onsekiz Mart University, Türkiye). Salim has worked tirelessly, not only organizing last year’s ENAI conference in Türkiye but also ENAI summer school, as well as providing leadership for ENAI working groups and mentorship for graduate students interested in learning more about academic integrity. This year, he is also helping provide support to some of the many academics displaced by the catastrophic earthquake in Türkiye. 

And our most prestigious award, the Tracey Bretag Award Memorial Award, goes to our colleague Thomas Lancaster (Imperial College London, United Kingdom). His research, publications, and teaching, which began before the establishment of ENAI, has, and continues to help us understand and address myriad challenges as they evolve, from plagiarism and cheating to contract cheating and artificial intelligence.
