    The 2020 theme has been chosen in line with Dubai’s Happiness Agenda: Integrity in education for future happiness

    At the European Network for Academic Integrity’s Annual General Meeting (2018), the University of Wollongong in Dubai won the bid to organise the 6th International Conference Plagiarism across Europe and Beyond Conference 2020. Academic Integrity is the foundation on which all of academia stands. It is in schools, classrooms, in corridors and canteens that students, the future citizens of the world, gather an understanding of what is right and what is wrong, what is meant by integrity, being truthful, responsible, and respectful. It is here that they develop honesty and fairness and take those values into the real world and as members of the greater community, practicing these skills in their everyday lives and at their workplaces. Ensuring and upholding integrity in education provides for a sustainable, constructive future – a platform that fosters, encourages and celebrates innovation and contributes to happy individuals, happy workplaces and a happy society.

    Over the last years, the question of academic integrity became one of the most important
    issues in higher education, as various forms of academic misconduct and non-ethical behavior
    become more visible and more frequent. We are nowadays witnessing the types of academic
    misconduct which are not easily understandable from both rational and ethical points of view,
    such as researchers publishing false data, forging results, plagiarizing or self-plagiarizing, etc.
    Similarly, number of students are cheating during the exams and showing wide array of nonethical behaviors. These and many other aspects of the academic “non-integrity” (in science and in education) are of particular interest for the international scientific community, which acknowledged this as the increasingly relevant and internationally recognized problem.

    Therefore, the main objective of the conference is to enhance scientific knowledge on the
    academic integrity through the interdisciplinary research-based approach which should
    facilitate emergence of innovative strategies for spreading the culture of academic integrity,
    promoting ethical behavior and preventing plagiarism and other types on non-ethical
    practices in academic environment and beyond.
