FIZ Karlsruhe starts research project to detect veiled plagiarism in mathematical publications

Over the next three years, researchers at FIZ Karlsruhe and Bergische Universität Wuppertal (Germany) will develop methods for detecting veiled plagiarism in scientific publications. For example, publications in mathematics and engineering, natural and technical sciences will be examined for paraphrases, translations or plagiarism of ideas. The German Research Foundation has now approved a pioneering cooperative project.
