null Newsletter No 4/2021- Copyright, plagiarism and research ethics


Copyright, plagiarism and research ethics

By Ignace Haaz

Book open with words flying

Copyright, plagiarism and research ethics play an important role, particularly in the context of UNESCO's World Book and Copyright Day, aiming to promote the best opportunities for reading and publishing. My reflection is based on a chapter from Mainstreaming Ethics in Higher Education - The Teacher: Between Knowledge Transmission and Human Formation Vol. 2, by Obiora Ike,  Justus Mbae, Chidiebere Onyia and Herbert Makinda. This double volume book project is the result of a conference in March 2018 at the Catholic University of East Africa (CUEA) in Kenya, which focused on integrating ethics in higher education.

The second volume, and the chapter I propose to consider more closely, intended to capture the potential for sharing of knowledge, and triggering interdisciplinary collaboration and research across a wide variety of issues ranging from research practice, religion, entrepreneurship, leadership, fundraising and corruption. While some of the chapters focus on the understanding of ethics and its relationship with the various other aspects of life, others concentrate on the methods and strategies of effectively teaching ethics.
