Staffer leaves Swinburne

Swinburne U investigated allegations of self-plagiarism

Last month journal publisher Sage retracted 22 articles with numerous authors, which “contain significant overlap with previously published articles.” At the time, Swinburne U commissioned an investigation, “in line with university policies and procedures for responsible conduct of research,” (CMM September 17).

Yesterday Swinburne U did not name anyone but announced it, “has undertaken an investigation focussed on the work of a researcher, published prior to joining the university. We can confirm that researcher is no longer employed by Swinburne.”
