BoredPanda 2015 • How do we technically acknowledging the original influence • How do we respect the integrity of the original influence and recognise how ideas have shaped our thinking. • How do we create something entirely new from synthesising multiple influences and go beyond making just slight changes.
  13. 13. © Middlesex University What challenges and impact might these activities have at research level? • Keeping track of which data comes from which source. • Becoming an expert. • Distinguishing originality and legacy. • Honestly reflecting on our influences. • Taking or conferring ownership of ideas. • Respecting the integrity of ideas. • Persevering.
  14. 14. © Middlesex University How might it effect my career? • Marcu, Danut (2006) ̧ ‘A note on the rooted loopless planar maps.’ Geombinatorics 16 (2), pp266–269. • As the editor of this journal announced subsequently in a paper entitled “The case of Dr.Danut ̧ Marcu: Serial plagiarism and signing false statements” [A. Soifer, Geombinatorics 16 (2007), no. 3, 293– 296], this paper “nearly word-for-word repeats” [E. A. Bender and N. C. Wormald, Discrete Math. 54 (1985), no. 2, 235–237; MR0791664]. • That announcement also points out that three other papers by Marcu previously published in Geombinatorics [Geombinatorics 13 (2004), no. 3, 139–140; Geombinatorics 13 (2004), no. 4, 178–179; Geombinatorics 14 (2004), no. 1, 18–20], as well as a recent submission to that journal, were also plagiarised. • r%3A%20Anywhere%3D%28plagiarism%29&co4=AND&co5=AND&co6=AND&co7=AND&dr=all&fmt=doc&pg4=ALLF&pg5=TI &pg6=PC&pg7=ALLF&pg8=ET&review_format=html&s4=plagiarism&s5=&s6=&s7=&s8=All&searchin=&sort=newest&vfpref=ht ml&yearRangeFirst=&yearRangeSecond=&yrop=eq&r=1
  15. 15. © Middlesex University Banned • The case of Dr. Danut Marcu: Serial plagiarism and signing false statements by Alexander Soifer. Editor, Geombinatorics • On December 2, 2006 my attention has been brought to one of Geombinatorics‘ authors, who is described in Wikipedia as follows: • Danut Marcu … claims to have authored 378 scientific papers. Marcu is frequently accused of plagiarism. • The editors of Studia Universitatis Babes-Bolyai, Informatica decided to ban Marcu from their journal for this reason, as did the editors of4OR: A Quarterly Journal of Operations Research [Springer]. • The editors of Geometriae Dedicata state that they suspect Marcu of plagiarism, as he submitted a manuscript which is “more-or-less word for word the same” as a paper by Lindström. Grossman, Kageyama, Pettet, and anonymous reviewers have accused Marcu of plagiarism in MathSciNet reviews. •

  29. 29. © Middlesex University Citing as you write • For in-text citations we need referencing systems and reporting verbs to make it absolutely clear to our reader which parts of our text come from which author and which are our own original voice. • We need to respect the original message and avoid misquoting or misrepresenting others idea by taking things out of context or changing meaning when we paraphrase. • We need to synthesise information from different sources and recognise in what ways different ideas and theorists align or challenge each other. It could be that underlying philosophy is the same but the interpretation of how we act on that differs. We need to explicitly show those relationships. • If we understand clearly how different schools of thought and ideas fit together for our context, then we are able to declare our own position. So once we have cited material from literature, we need to position ourselves within it. • We then need to bring all of this together and present our own creation which is grounded in the work of those who have gone before us.
