Two Kansas University professors snagged for plagiarism

IEEE apparently uncovered copying in papers published in some proceedings in 2009. The two (courtesy) professors at Kansas University involved in this copying did not report the event to Kansas University. The two professors were censured both for the copying and the failure to report the copying. noted:

The censure announcement named four academic papers that contained plagiarized material, including “Systematically Identifying Genes and Pathways in Multiple Cancer Types Using HGD & PSO-SVM” and “PathMapper-An Integrative Approach for Oncogene Pathway Identification.” The papers were published in August 2009 in the Proceedings of the 2009 International Joint Conference on Bioinformatics, Systems Biology and Intelligent Computing.

The Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, which held copies of the papers in its digital library, published a Notice of Violation of IEEE Publication Principles in place of the papers. The notice states that the papers contain significant portions of text from three other scholarly works, without attribution, and recommends that researchers remove any references to the papers in their own research.
