THE MAZE OF DEFINITIONS ON ACADEMIC INTEGRITY AND RELATED TERMS – IS IT EASY TO APPLY IN PRACTICE?

Clear definitions of terms related to academic integrity help to resolve difficulties arising from academic dishonesty. However, in practice the interpretation of these terms makes investigation of dishonest behaviour rather difficult. Naturally, there are more terms relating to academic misconduct than to academic conduct. Within the frame of definitions of academic integrity and related terms, this paper presents the Erasmus Plus project ‘European Network for Academic Integrity’; particularly one of its sub-outputs concerning the construction of a glossary. The glossary of academic integrity and related terms is based on a variety of credible sources, varying from documents issued by reputable international organisations to research papers where empirical data reveal academic misconduct related practices and cite real-life examples. The latter source enriches the glossary with terms on very specific deviations, and demonstrates the range of misconduct that serves to inspire the development of new terms. The aim of creating the glossary is to raise awareness in the matters of plagiarism, academic ethics, scholarly values and academic integrity. The paper discusses reasoning for the development of such a glossary, the process of collecting terms and developing their definitions as well as the first results of this process.
