About the Webinar

Journal of Academic Ethics (JAET), published by Springer Nature, is an interdisciplinary, peer-reviewed journal devoted to examining ethical issues that arise in all aspects of post-secondary education, primarily within a university context. Providing a forum for the publication and discussion of original research, the JAET examines ethical concerns in research, teaching, administration, and governance.

In this webinar, the Editor-in-Chief of the JAET will introduce the aims, and scope of the journal. The speaker will also share what policy the JAET applies when evaluating the quality of submissions and what opportunities are for authors and reviewers.
