COPE Webinar, Understanding Text Recycling, August 2020

7 August 2020 - 4:00pm

COPE is hosting a webinar on Text Recycling on Friday 7 August 2020, 16:00-17:15pm (BST) when we hear the latest findings from the members of the Text Recycling Research Project since they presented at last year's COPE European Seminar.

Text recycling, also known as self-plagiarism is a common practice in research writing—especially in the sciences. It’s also complicated, both ethically and legally, posing thorny challenges for both authors and editors. The Text Recycling Research Project (TRRP) aims to better understand this practice and support the development of more clear and consistent policies. Members of the TRRP will present and overview of their research to date—including surveys and interviews with editors and researchers, copyright and contract law, and analyses of published papers. They will then discuss the ethical and practical issues involved in establishing effective policy.

The speakers from TTRP are Cary Moskovitz, Lead PI, Duke University; Michael Pemberton, Professor of Writing and Linguistics, Georgia Southern University; and David R Hansen, Associate University Librarian for Research, Duke University Libraries
