Incident[edit]

Librarian Jeffrey Beall reports[2] that the editor of Scientometrics initially reacted indifferently to the discovery of extended word-for-word plagiarism in a 2013 article. The authors in question had copied material from a source and provided a citation, but had not used quotation marks. The article was ultimately retracted.[3]
