Kansas University profs nailed for plagiarism

From an article in Nature:

The ORI notice says that Visvanathan committed intentional plagiarism, but he tells Nature that he is actually taking the blame for a student he was supervising at an institution abroad. “Even though the sanctions are severe, I have sincerely accepted them,” he says. Lushington says that he has been advised not to comment. Two papers published by the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers were retracted on 5 January.

John Dahlberg of ORI: “In recent months, we’ve had a plethora of plagiarism cases.”
