Applying criminological theory to academic fraud

Applying criminological theory to academic fraud Purpose – This paper aims to examine academic dishonesty and research misconduct, two forms of academic fraud, and provides suggestions for future research informed by criminological theory. Design/methodology/approach – After reviewing prior literature, this paper outlines four general criminological theories that can explain academic fraud. Findings – While criminological theory has been applied to some studies of academic dishonesty, research misconduct has rarely been examined within a broader theoretical context. Practical implications – This paper provides a blueprint for future theoretically informed analyses of academic fraud. Originality/value – This paper represents a unique attempt to apply general criminological theories to diverse forms of fraud in higher education settings. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Journal of Financial Crime Emerald Publishing
