ETHICS : PLAGIARISM : REPORTING : THESES : DATABASE SEARCH RESULTS: Sources Regarding the Reporting of a Dissertation or Thesis

https://tinyurl.com/ybck9w6t

This post was first shared by me in response to a discussion group inquiry.

First of all, I personally think you should report this to the chair of each department and to the Dean of the college in which each incident of plagiarism occured. Also look at the links I am providing for relevant sources that may give you other ideas regarding how to handle this. Also see if you can find any indication that these individuals have turned this into a publication and report this to the editors and publisher of the journal. This is more provable if the plagiarists have a publication date later than yours. If not you may want to consult with your advisors, chair and dean regarding how to prove this matter, the lack of citing additiional authors for the same material may help indicate plagiarism here.
