Case 19 has made its way to the front page of VroniPlag. This is the first dissertation submitted to a private university for finance, the Frankfurt School of Finance and Management. Interestingly, the accreditation body for the school, the Wissenschaftsrat, had strongly recommended accrediting the school but not giving them the right to have doctoral students. The Hessian state disregarded this and gave the school dissertation rights.
The university president responded to the notice of the documentation promptly and will be starting an investigation.
This thesis includes an extremely large bibliography, around 2200 entries on 170 pages. There are so many errors in the bibliography that a separate documentation page has been opened for this. In addition to many typographical errors, errors that the source made are also copied. There are also many instances of translation plagiarism to be found here.
