The idea for this directory came to me after talking with a number of graduate students who are undertaking research related to academic integrity under the supervision of generous professors who have agreed to be their advisors, but have little to no expertise in this field.
I developed this directory to provide opportunities for graduate students (and their supervisors) to be better supported in developing sound research projects on topics related to academic integrity.
The goal of this work is to provide an accessible directory of faculty members who are qualified and interested in supporting graduate students through as academic supervisors, graduate committee members, and examiners. Those who are currently supervising students whose research relates to plagiarism, academic misconduct policy, contract cheating or other topics related to academic integrity may find this directory useful when considering who might serve as a committee member or examiner for a graduate student.
Because the field of academic integrity is still developing in Canada and scholars are still forming their networks of collaboration and practice, I have purposely limited this directory to faculty members who have current affiliations to accredited Canadian universities. There are a number of other inclusion criteria, which you can see in the directory itself.
This is an informal directory and those whose names appear in it have agreed to having their contact information shared. It is formatted as a shareable Google doc, which I have embedded here.
The embedded doc should automatically update as I update the directory. It is my intention to grow the directory over time, as the field of academic integrity research further develops in Canada.
