A plagiarism loop: Authors copied from papers that had copied from others - Retraction Watch

A plagiarism loop: Authors copied from papers that had copied from others - Retraction Watch | Plagiarism | Scoop.it
Note to self: If you’re going to duplicate your own work, don’t copy from papers that plagiarize others’ research. Just such a mistake has cost a PhD candidate three papers — although his co-author argues that a company is in part to blame. Hossein Jafarzadeh, who is studying mechanical engineering at the University of Tehran, apparently asked a …

Sci-Hub Will Increase Academic Plagiarism

Sci-Hub Will Increase Academic Plagiarism | Plagiarism | Scoop.it
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. Plagiarists already exploit open-access repositories…

When does "overlap" become plagiarism? Here's what PLOS ONE decided - Retraction Watch | Plagiarism | Scoop.it
Consider this: Fragments of a PLOS ONE paper overlap with pieces of other publications. The authors used them without credit and without quotation marks. This sounds an awful lot like plagiarism — using PLOS‘s own standards, even. But the journal isn’t calling it plagiarism. They’ve labeled this an instance of “text overlap,” a spokesperson told us, based …

Melania Trump Apparently Plagiarized a Section of Michelle Obama's 2008 Convention Speech

Melania Trump Apparently Plagiarized a Section of Michelle Obama's 2008 Convention Speech | Plagiarism | Scoop.it
Tonight at the Republican National Convention, potential first lady Melania Trump delivered the night’s headlining speech in what was her most important moment in the public eye since she married Donald Trump 11 years ago. The speech was praised by hacks on both sides of the aisle (and the middle), though there might unintentionally be a reason for that: As first pointed out by journalist Jarrett Hill, Melania—or more likely her speechwriters—appears to have lifted at least one crucial section of her speech from the one Michelle Obama gave at the 2008 Democratic National Convention.

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 A paper has been retracted from Semigroup Forum because it includes material taken from another researcher’s manuscript — which was handwritten.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 …
