Academic Integrity Reader

The Academic Integrity Reader is a collection and bibliography of the scholarly pieces considered to be the most influential on Academic Integrity published since 1992 (the formation of ICAI). The purpose of the  Reader is to serve as a resource for academic integrity scholars and practitioners interested in grounding the research and practice in the field.

The first edition of the Reader was published in 2012 to celebrate the 20th anniversary of ICAI.
