I'm afraid that the text previously published in this article far too closely paraphrased from . While facts are not copyrightable, creative elements of presentation - including both structure and language - are. For an example of close paraphrasing, consider the following:
In 2008, the renowned publisher of books on African Studies, James Currey Ltd joined the Boydell and Brewer group of imprints. Founded in 1984, when James Currey left Heinemann Educational Books, this independent imprint continued his personal engagement in African publishing, which began with his first job at Oxford University Press, Cape Town, and continued through his role as publisher of the Heinemann African Writers series.
The article says:
...in 2008 James Currey Ltd, a well-known publisher of African Studies titles, joined the Boydell & Brewer family. James Currey Ltd. was launched in 1984 when it’s eponymous founder left Heinemann Educational Books. This independent imprint continued Currey's personal engagement in African publishing, which began with his first job at Oxford University Press, Cape Town, and continued through his role as publisher of the Heinemann African Writers series.
There are other passages that follow too closely although none as extensively as this one.
