Is it life-threatening to investigate plagiarism?
Yes, it can be. The following real life story will give you the overall picture what has happened.
Emilia Șercan is an investigative journalist (for 22 years) working as an assistant professor (for 7 years) at University of Bucharest, Faculty of Journalism and Communication Sciences, Department of Journalism. First time I communicated with her in Brno at the conference Plagiarism across Europe and Beyond 2017. There I learnt about the spectrum of her activities and the power of her personality. She is fearless, steady and unceasing fighter against academic misconduct in Romania.
