The over 50 million scholarly articles stolen by the pirates at Sci-Hub will significantly increase the occurrence of academic plagiarism. In some cases, Sci-Hub is able to download and re-publish content before it's been crawled by plagiarism-detection companies — that is, before they can add newly-published content to their central indexes.

This case of plagiarism is a little weirder than usual. A paper has been retracted from Semigroup Forum because it includes material taken from another researcher’s manuscript — which was handwritten. In fact, the same journal had already published a paper by the plagiarized researcher, also based on the same manuscript. The journal editor told us that, although the two papers …
