Conference on Protecting the Integrity of Academic Work

The Harry Crowe Foundation’s second conference addressed a variety of significant threats and challenges facing academic researchers in Canada and abroad. Held in Ottawa (November 2-4, 2007), the conference revolved around four primary themes:

  1. academia's production-driven research culture,
  2. pressures exerted by external research sponsors,
  3. outside pressures on academic discourse, and
  4. the unbundling of faculty work.

The Foundation is pulling together a collection of essays based on presentations made at the conference which should be available by Fall, 2008.
