Sharon Stein – Higher Education: The International Journal of Higher Education Research, 2024
This article reflects on recent calls for universities to deepen their commitments to sustainability in the face of climate change.

In academia, plagiarism is considered detrimental to the advancement of sciences, and the plagiarists can be charged with sanctions. However, the plagiarism cases involving three rectors of universities in Indonesia stand out, as they could defend their stand for not committing academic misconduct despite evidence found. By analyzing the three…

Géring, Zsuzsanna; Tamássy, Réka; Király, Gábor; Rakovics, Márton – Higher Education: The International Journal of Higher Education Research, 2023
