- Joya (2012) and Ortigosa (2012) are two dissertations that have been defended before the dissertation discussed here. They have been written at the same institute and partially with the same supervisors. None of the two dissertations is listed in the bibliography, but both contain large parts of the introduction of the dissertation discussed here (there is also a significant overlap between Joya (2012) and Ortigosa (2012), see Analyse:Sog).
- Note that Joya (2012), Ortigosa (2012) and the dissertation of J. G. S. have all been written roughly at the same time, such that it is not a priori clear in which direction the text has been copied and additional information is necessary to decide that question. None of the three dissertation mentions any of the other dissertations. However, according to the dates available, the thesis of J. G. S. was the latest to be defended and to be published:
- Lozano et al. 2007: Some of the figures in the dissertation originally stem from this publication, which is mentioned in the dissertation, but the figures in question are not attributed.
- Fragment 022 01: An entire page is almost identical to the source that is not mentioned anywhere in the thesis. See also Fragment 018 01.
- Fragment 012 01, Fragment 014 01: Also figures have been copied without attribution.
- The following people could have spotted the text parallels:
- Oscar García-Algar has been supervisor of the dissertation of J. G. S. as well as supervisor of Joya (2012) and Ortigosa (2012). Furthermore he is a coauthor of Lozano et al. 2007.
- Oriol Vall Combelles has been supervisor of the dissertation of J. G. S. as well as supervisor of Joya (2012).
- Bibiana Fríguls Francitorra has been supervisor of the dissertation of J. G. S. as well as supervisor of Ortigosa (2012).

In order to get a quick overview of the complete picture one can use the Text comparison tool of the Wiki: after copying the entire text of the dissertation into the right window and the entire text of the (possible) source into the left window, one presses the button "Texte vergleichen!". Then both texts are shown below their respective windows whereby text parallels are coloured and can be identified and appreciated at first glance.
