Case study on Plagiarism...A Burning issue.

Sponsored Links

Hello, Dear bloggers, Here, I am making you all to know one issue of plagiarism suspected in India from many controversial cases reported... In 2007, appeared a controversy in Anna University, this time surrounding authors from Anna University and Indira Gandhi Centre for Atomic Research (IGCAR) publishing an article in the Journal of Materials Science [1][2]. The article written by K. Muthukumar, T. Mathews, S. Selladurai and R. Bokalawela was reported to be a reproduction of an article published earlier in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS) by David Andersson and others at the Royal Institute of Technology, Sweden. In a correction published online, the journal reported that the article 'does not just plagiarize the results presented in the PNAS paper but actually copies most of it word for word'. The journal had started an investigation and is also working with officials at the two institutions. The three authors other than the first author have distanced themselves from the paper and the first author has accepted his mistake. In the meanwhile, the Anna University had barred Dr. Selladurai from guiding any more doctoral students. And also added each and everyone is suspected Dr.Selladurai putting blame on his student, because the professor is not capable of scientific activities. And also the Editorial of the journal found Prof Selladurai is the corresponding author because the paper uploaded his (university) computer IP address and the copyright form signed by him, the university found the student as a scapegoat for Prof. Selladurai.
