Request for Studies for Meta-Analysis on Motivation and Academic Dishonesty
I am currently conducting a meta-analysis on the relationship between motivation and academic dishonesty as part of my dissertation with the assistance of my co-chair, Dr. Carlton Fong. We are interested in any and all studies that investigate this relationship, primarily in correlational studies. For example, we are interested in studies that assess the relationship between students’ academic dishonesty and motivational variables such as locus of control, goal orientation, self-efficacy, subjective norm, etc. While it is quite easy to locate published studies, unpublished reports are much more difficult to find. If you have or know of any such studies and are willing to share them, we would very much appreciate hearing from you. These types of documents include conference presentations, unpublished dissertations, or in press manuscripts.
Although we can offer little more than our gratitude for your assistance, we will formally cite all viable data we receive in our comprehensive meta-analysis. Please do not hesitate to send us anything you think we might be interested in. If you feel uncertain about the relevance of a study you have, just send it to us. We are happy to screen through all potentially relevant documents. Any information that you may be able to provide will be quite helpful for this study. I will send you a copy of our final report if you respond. Please feel free to circulate this post to your colleagues.
To share any studies/work, or if you have any questions, please email firstname.lastname@example.org by December 7, 2018.
Thank you so much,
