Posted by Jessica Gopalakrishnan on Dec 12, 2014 4:26:00 PM

Plagiarism and integrity continue to be areas of concern on academic, research and publishing levels.  We had the pleasure of speaking with Peter LaPlaca who is the editor of Industrial Marketing Management (IMM), a journal published by Elsevier, and a global seminar speaker, promoting ethics. During this audio interview, Mr. LaPlaca discusses various types of issues he and other editors encounter (some are rather surprising), best practices for how editors can handle submissions that contain plagiarism, and how giving students the proper guidance can make a world of difference when it comes to publishing success.

Plagiarism and Educational Material

Posted by Jonathan Bailey on Nov 21, 2014 2:55:00 PM

While plagiarism in the classrooms is a widely-discussed topic, it’s not always the students who have issues with copied content, sometimes its the educational materials that either contain plagiarism or are the victim of plagiarism.

One widely-known example involved Theresa Cameron, a former professor at the College of Design at Arizona State University. Despite over ten years with the college and having been awarded Tenure, the school terminated her, in a controversial decision, over alleged plagiarism in six syllabi.

Plagiarism on college campuses is a well-documented problem. Much of the emphasis is placed on undergraduate education and the need to teach students how to correctly integrate writing into their courses. What is less often discussed is the growth of cheating and plagiarism in graduate and professional schools. In fact, while rates of cheating among graduate students are lower than among undergraduates, they are not substantially lower. The paper, Ph.D. in "Cut-and-Paste"?, provides insight into the growing problem of plagiarism in graduate programs, and why it may be particularly prevalent in STEM disciplines and among ESL students, highlights consequences and types of plagiarism facing graduate students and scholars, and offers educational solutions to preventing plagiarism within the graduate community.

Why Copyright Matters in Research

Posted by Jonathan Bailey on Sep 22, 2014 10:40:00 AM

Previously, we looked at the divisions growing in the open access community and an overview as to what Creative Commons is and how it applies to academic research. However, all of this points to a much larger question: Why is copyright in research such an important issue for research?To understand this, we first have to look at what copyright is and then how it applies to research and why that application is crucial.

Understanding Creative Commons for Researchers

Posted by Jonathan Bailey on Sep 4, 2014 9:30:00 AM

The role of intellectual property in research has long been a divisive issue.

However, as the open access movement has grown, copyright has been particularly thrust into the spotlight. This has become especially important as divisions over which copyright license(s) to use have caused rifts among publishers and funders.
