The full impact of artificial intelligence tools (e.g., GPT-3, ChatGPT, DALL-E) on teaching, learning, and assessment is evolving rapidly. By extension, questions arise about the ethical implications of artificial intelligence tools used for writing, coding, fine arts, and other educational applications. In this thematic collection, we welcome papers regarding the impact of artificial intelligence on academic integrity. 

We define academic integrity broadly, including but not limited to student conduct, ethical teaching, ethical feedback and assessment, and the ethical application and development of new technologies for learning.

Topics may include, but are not limited to: 

  • Arificial Intelligence
  • Large Language Models (LLM)
  • GPT-3
  • GPT-4
  • ChatGPT
  • academic integrity
  • research integrity
  • higher education
  • education    

Submitted papers will be reviewed in a timely manner and published directly after acceptance (i.e. without waiting for the accomplishment of all other contributions). Thanks to the International Journal for Educational Integrity (IJEI) open access policy, the articles published in this thematic series will have a wide, global audience.

Some author processing charges (APCs) may be waived at the discretion of the Editor-in-Chief to outstanding and innovative contributions.

Submission deadline: February 28, 2025
