As a part of continued efforts to provide the latest, peer-reviewed research globally, IGI Global is collaborating directly with the Bayern-Konsortium, an association of libraries with the aim of jointly acquiring rights to use databases, electronic journals, and e-books, to offer affordable and flexible offerings for their full e-Book Collection and Knowledge Solutions e-Book Collections.

Through this consortia agreement, we wanted to provide an alternative opportunity for libraries to easily acquire subject-specific content while maximizing their budgets. This agreement provides cost savings, the opportunity to take advantage of flexible Read & Publish models, as well as the opportunity for librarians to acquire content based on evidence.

Dr Donna M Velliaris, an IGI Global editor of the Handbook of Research on Academic Misconduct in Higher Education (2016) and Prevention and Detection of Academic Misconduct in Higher Education (2019), underscores how just as students seek many and varied ways to cheat, professors should seek many and varied ways to combat intentional misconduct, and therein make the temptation to cheat more burdensome and counter-productive than it is worth.
