Prominent fragmentsBearbeiten

  • Fragment 019 01: An entire page including 9 references to the literature have been taken from a source that is only mentioned at the end of the page.
  • Fragment 021 11: Substantial text and two references to the literature have been copied without naming the source.
  • Fragment 032 11: This fragment is an example for an image that has been copied without naming the source.
  • Fragment 049 02: This fragment is remarkable because it documents a substantial text parallel in the chapter "4. Results". The source is not mentioned.

Prominent sourcesBearbeiten

Other observationsBearbeiten

  • The section numbers 3.2, 3.3 and 3.9 have been assigned twice.


  • Currently there are 41 reviewed fragments documented that are considered to be violations of citation rules. For 25 of them there is no reference given to the source used („Verschleierungen“ and „Komplettplagiate“). For 16 fragments the source is given, but the extent of the used text is not made clear („Bauernopfer“).
  • The publication has 51 pages that have been analyzed. On a total of 32 of these pages violations of citation rules have been documented. This represents a percentage of 62.7%. The 51 analyzed pages break down with respect to the amount of text parallels encountered as follows:
Percentage text parallels Number of pages
No text parallels documented 19
0%-50% text parallels 16
50%-75% text parallels 4
75%-100% text parallels 12
From these statistics an extrapolation of the amount of text of the publication under investigation that has been documented as problematic can be estimated (conservatively) as about 26% of the main part of the publication.


The following chart illustrates the amount and the distribution of the text parallel findings. The colours show the type of plagiarism diagnosed:

  • grau="Komplettplagiat" (copy & paste): the source of the text parallel is not given, the copy is verbatim.
  • rot="Verschleierung" (disguised plagiarism): the source of the text parallel is not given, the copied text will be somewhat modified.
  • gelb="Bauernopfer" (pawn sacrifice): the source of the text parallel is mentioned, but the extent and/or the closeness of the copy to the source is not made clear by the reference.
