Publication Date: 2020-01-29
Is it time to launch that new academic program? Here is the 'art' and 'science' of answering that question. Never has it been so critical for academic leaders to adopt an entrepreneurial mindset. Traditional financial management approaches such as resource prioritization and/or cutting one's way to sustainability are no longer sufficient long-term solutions. Successful academic leaders are outward-looking and have developed a discipline around driving entrepreneurial growth in ways that live and further leverage the mission. We need provosts, deans, and other academic leaders who are creative, willing to take intelligent risks, and ready to seek answers to questions like: "How can we do this differently?""What do we do really well that might be leveraged in new and unique ways?""What market opportunities exist that we are uniquely equipped to meet?" During her time as provost, Melissa Morriss-Olson has helped Bay Path University launch more than 20 successful new graduate programs over the past decade. In this comprehensive guide, Morriss-Olson will walk you through how to build and sustain entrepreneurial growth in your academic enterprise.
Disguised Academic Plagiarism by
Call Number: PN167 D68 2020
Publication Date: 2020-07-12
This volume is the first book-length study of disguised forms of plagiarism that mar the body of published research in humanities disciplines. As a contribution to applied research ethics, this practical guide offers a typology of the principal forms of disguised plagiarism. It provides detailed analyses, in-depth case studies, and useful flow charts to assist researchers, editors, and publishers in protecting the integrity of the body of published research literature. Disguised plagiarism is more subtle than copy-and-paste plagiarism; all its varieties involve some additional concealment that creates further distance between the plagiarizing text and its source. These disguised forms are the most difficult forms of plagiarism to detect. Readers of the volume will become acquainted with the subtler forms of plagiarism that corrupt the production and dissemination of knowledge in humanities fields. The book is valuable not only to those interested in research ethics, but also to those in humanities fields including philosophy, theology, and history.
