Statement by the SAS Presidium

Added by: S. Ščepán, 19.11.2018, 1231 visit

The Presidium of the Slovak Academy of Sciences considers plagiarism to be an offence. It does not matter what kind of work it is or whether or not at the time of its creation simple software tools to verify the originality of the work existed, whether its use was required by law or other regulations, or that plagiarism was at the time a common practice in some workplaces. Plagiarism was, is, and will always be cheating.

At the same time, SAS will distance itself from any attempt to justify plagiarism and expresses its deep regret that some of the former members of the SAS Presidium are also trying to justify this fraudulent act.
