Co-organisation between the Partnership on University Plagiarism Prevention (PUPP)
Canadian Symposium on Academic Integrity (CSAI)

Call for papers

As part of the 2024 Conference organized by the Partnership on University Plagiarism Prevention (PUPP), five themes have been chosen and their titles indicate the language in which the papers have to be written and in which the symposium will be held.

How the PUPP 2024 Conference will work

For the PUPP 2024 Conference, which will be held in Gatineau, a closed symposium and conference format will be used. The first two days of the conference will have a traditional format with a call for papers and oral presentations. The last two days will be devoted to closed symposia.Here is how the symposium format will work1. The goal of these symposia will be to foster collaboration between PUPP researchers and other researchers to facilitate publication in the field of research on integrity.
In the last two days of the PUPP Conference, five symposia will be held on the theme presented above. Additional themes may be accepted if symposium coordinators wish to propose one with another theme related to the PUPP themes.

For each symposium, ten to fifteen persons or teams (two or more researchers) will be invited to write a paper. Teams may be made up of researchers and/or doctoral students. The participants commit themselves to

  1. be present for both days of the symposium. It is not possible to participate in two symposia at the same time. This way of operating the symposia is modeled on that of the REF – Research-Education-Training
  2. write a text that corresponds to the criteria that will be established by the coordinators of the symposium.
  3. submit their paper three months before the symposium.
  4. read all other participants’ papers before they arrive at the symposium to contribute to the discussion at the symposium.
  5. act as the lead discussant for one other paper, i.e., prepare more in-depth comments and questions about the paper.
  6. rework their paper based on the comments received at the symposium into a final version ready for publication.
  7. meet the deadlines set by the symposium coordinators.

The symposium will provide an opportunity to discuss the papers and offer suggestions to the authors. When the symposium is over, the papers will be submitted either to a thematic issue of a journal or for publication in a book.

The symposia will also be open to observers who wish to listen to the discussions without submitting a paper.

A coordinator(s) for each of the symposia has been appointed in January 2023. All coordinators are members of the PUPP team. The coordinators are responsible for writing a call for papers for their symposium, selecting the teams that will participate, managing the organization of the symposium, and finding a publisher or journal for the publication.

The PUPP will be responsible for the general organization of the conference and the symposia (technical support, accommodation, meals, etc.). PUPP members who are eligible will receive funding. All other participants will have to pay their own costs.
