Cracow University also finds plagiarism

In August of 2011 the VroniPlag Wiki site went public with a documentation of plagiarism in the dissertation of German professor Cornelia Scott, a professor at a polytechnic college in Saxony. The university in Cracow, Poland, where she submitted her dissertation, has been investigating the case. The university has announced at the end of January 2012 that they have indeed confirmed that the dissertation contains plagiarism on 33 pages , 4 less that the VroniPlag documentation (20% of the dissertation).

The case has been referred to a federal board for investigation into whether the plagiarism is serious enough to rescind the doctorate.
