An 8-minute survey on academic developers’ perceptions of integrity 
The survey remains open until Friday, December 3, 2021.

HERDSA colleagues,

“Integrity” appears in the academic development literature as an element of effective practice, yet often without further explanation. 

For a new study, we invite you to share your own perspectives on “integrity” as an academic developer using a short, anonymous survey that will take approximately 8 minutes to complete.
If you are willing to participate in this study, please click on the following link to complete the online consent form and access the survey: https://seattleux.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_8wYlDbPooTO5Aea Seattle University’s Institutional (ethics) Review Board has determined the study to be exempt from review in accordance with US federal regulation criteria. Full information is provided in the online consent form.

Thank you for giving this your consideration.

Stay safe and well.

Best regards,
David A Green, PhD | Seattle University, WA, USA
Deandra Little, PhD | Elon University, NC, USA

IJSaP 5(2) is published 
Abstract, paper deadline or event date: 

We are delighted to let you know that the 10th Issue of the International Journal for Students as Partners (IJSaP) is now available from https://mulpress.mcmaster.ca/ijsap/issue/current. It is our largest Issue to date.

In it you will find 24 manuscripts – 1 editorial, 3 research articles, 6 case studies, 12 reflective essays, 1 opinion piece, and 1 review that have been written by 31 students and 39 staff/faculty from Australia, Canada, China, Hong Kong, Malaysia, New Zealand , South Africa, the United Kingdom, and the United States. 

Issue 5.2 also contains the second set of contributions to the Voices from the Field section. These have been written by 7 students, 4 staff, and 9 faculty from within a range of institutional types in Australia, Canada, New Zealand, Pakistan, Singapore, South Africa, the United Kingdom, and the United States.

Please note that we will be publishing a special section in the next Issue on Partnership in Fostering Socially-Just Pedagogies. As this will take up much of the Issue, we have decided to postpone the next Voices from the Field section until Issue 6.2. We will publish a call for contributions later. We expect to publish Issue 6.1 in May 2022. 

This issue of IJSaP, which is hosted by the MacPherson Institute at McMaster University and published by McMaster University Library Press, was co-edited by students and staff/faculty from Australia, Canada, China (Hong Kong), China (Mainland), Malaysia, UK, and US. 

Potential authors (both staff/faculty and students) with an idea for a research article, case study, opinion piece, reflective essay, or review are strongly encouraged to send the editors (ijsap@mcmaster.ca) a brief (around 250 words) proposal (https://teaching.mcmaster.ca/app/uploads/2019/07/Proposed-submission-pro...) before writing and submitting the article. This will help ensure that the proposed piece fits with the focus of the journal and encourages a conversation between potential authors and the editorial board. The proposal should outline the type (i.e. research article, opinion piece, etc.) as well as focus of the potential submission. We also welcome hearing your views about the journal. 

Staff/faculty and students who have interest and experience in students as partners are encouraged to indicate their interest in joining the International Reviewer Panel by completing the Reviewer Expression of Interest Form (https://goo.gl/forms/lagSTJPSms0mTOaH3).

Please pass this announcement on to anyone you think may be interested.
