search-engines-web.com sent along a link to An LJ Blurb on This Paper, presented at The Charleston Conference on Republishing.
LJ Called it a "bombshell paper" because Cornell University librarian Phil Davis detailed a pattern of republishing content without attribution at Emerald Publishing, formerly known as MCB University Press. Using simple keyword searching of the publisher's online journals, Davis identified 409 examples of duplicated articles from 67 journals, all "republished without notification from 1989 through 2003."
