There Was a Crooked Man(uscript): A Not-so-Serious Look at the Serious Subject of Plagiarism
McGuire, Kevin T.
PS: Political Science and Politics, v43 n1 p107-113 2010
The problem of plagiarism by political scientists has not received much attention. The incidence of plagiarism, however, may be greater than one would think. In this article, I offer a humorous look at what happened when a manuscript of mine was plagiarized. Based on my experience, I offer some suggestions on how scholars might detect and prevent plagiarism.
