The news over the past two weeks has continued to bring several more stories of plagiarism. Two weeks ago, we told you about Korean cable television talk show host, Kim Mi-Kung’s denial of plagiarism in her 2007 dissertation.
First this week is an update on a story we told you about last week. In Montana, John McGee, superintendent of schools for the Florence-Carlton School District will be suspended without pay from March 25 to April 5 because of plagiarism.
The Washington Post reported on March 20, 2013 that world-renowned primatologist Jane Goodall has plagiarized several passages in her new book which is to be released next month.
Plagiarism in the news this week will begin abroad. The website Bella Naija says that four academic staff from the University of Calabar (Nigeria) have been dismissed because of plagiarism.
Last week, I wrote about the increasing frequency of plagiarism accusations amongst Russian politicians, but the issue is by no means isolated to Russia. The New York Times ran an article this week about plagiarism issues amongst German politicians.
