About this video

Plagiarism is often considered a classic form of scientific misconduct. However, it is sometimes tricky to draw a clear line between intentional copying and unintentional lack of references when using somebody else’s ideas and/or wording.

In collaboration with HEADT Centre at Humboldt University, this Researcher Academy webinar discusses the different forms of text plagiarism and presents some established strategies of detection. Also, this webinar focuses on image duplication and its effects and will ask what the future of plagiarism detection may look like in selected scientific fields.

After watching this webinar, you will be able to understand how plagiarism varies across scientific fields and the future of plagiarism detection.
