Resumen

HERNANDEZ ISLAS, Mónica. Academic plagiarism in scientific investigation. Considerations from the perspective of a senior researcher. Perfiles educativos [online]. 2016, vol.38, n.153, pp.120-135. ISSN 0185-2698.

The main objective of this investigation is to contribute to understanding of the ways in which researchers conceive academic plagiarism and the people implicated in cases of plagiarism. In addition, it seeks to understand the way in which researchers make decisions about cases of plagiarism when they are implicated as evaluators or editors of scientific publications. For this investigation of a qualitative nature, in-depth interviews were conducted in order to account for personal experiences and perceptions narrated directly by 51 Mexican senior researchers. The results reveal contradictions in the importance that investigators state they give to plagiarism and their close-up perception of this phenomenon, with the actions they carry out in the face of plagiarism and their experiences over the course of their careers. Moreover, the study permits the identification of some prevailing criteria for deciding not to pursue certain cases of plagiarism fully.
