Plagiarism as a professional misconduct has serious consequences in the western countries. However, the same has not been found to be true in other countries. Strangely, plagiarism is often considered as a culturally acceptable practice without having any severe ramifications in some countries (e.g. India).


Like any other perpetrators, most academics and students hardly bother about legal consequences of plagiarism such as loss of reputation, privileges, respect, integrity; imposition of fine and penalties; failure in courses; revocation of academic degrees and professional credentials; suspension, expulsion, dismissal, jail terms, and other penal actions. Plagiarists are allowed to roam scot-free while holding the powerful roles in universities, colleges, research centres, and other establishments. As a result there has been rampant plagiarism in almost all establishments (viz. academic, research, literary, film industry).


Regulatory bodies may have anti-plagiarism rules and regulations but rarely enforced in letter and spirit. A strong support from the PMC (Politico-Media Complex) for plagiarists has ruined the moral fabric of academia. Countless victims of plagiarism continue to suffer, whereas learners and advanced learners are ill equipped with the knowledge to deal with plagiarism issues (viz. forms of plagiarism, intentional and unintentional plagiarism, avoiding plagiarism, preventing others from plagiarising one’s own work). Therefore, this training session has been designed to gain a clear understanding of different forms of plagiarism and other relevant issues through the use of insight into world’s notorious cases of plagiarism. 




B M Santosh, PhD (ACU, Australia)

Founder, Organisational Change Facilitator & Research Consultant

Chinmayi Research and Consulting


Santosh is a transnational professional consultant specialised in change management, competitive intelligence and customer experience. He has over two decades of experience in assisting leaders, managers and their teams at all levels of management in achieving performance excellence through applied business ethics and integrated innovation strategies. He is a Certified Peer Reviewer and currently serves as a member of editorial board/reviewer of international journals published in Canada, UK, USA and Singapore.


He has independently investigated more than 100 cases of plagiarism, and other forms of research misconduct (fabrication and falsification) in the last two decades. In some cases, research articles were retracted by the journal editorial boards or rejected post review, whereas in other cases plagiarists were penalised appropriately by their organisations. When the plagiarised articles were rejected post review, the same articles with no changes were published by plagiarists in predatory journals. Regrettably, plagiarists were tactfully shielded in majority cases by their institutions (incl. Institutes of National Importance in India and elsewhere) without giving access to conduct full investigation or sometimes providing only limited access, that is, when RTI (Right to Information Act 2005) was used to dig out facts and expose shoddy research in India’s so-called reputable institutes. As a result, most plagiarists have been allowed to go scot-free after committing different forms of plagiarism and many are still blatantly engaged in plagiarism and other forms of research misconduct.
