SIU committee gives definition of plagiarism

Further to the report in the Daily Iowan on the Poshard matter, the SIU Daily Egyptian discusses a definition of plagiarism created by a committee at SIU:

Plagiarism is defined as presenting existing work as one's own.

IPBiz notes that IF that is the controlling definition, THEN copying one's own work without attribution IS plagiarism. That would place what SIU Wendler did in the past as plagiarism by the current definition.

And of the Daily Iowan's connection of the Patriots' videotaping to Poshard,


note that the SIU report distinguishes plagiarism from cheating.

SEPARATELY, IPBiz will discuss inadequacies in the Daily Iowan editorial at a future date.
