Plagiarism Questions on Nominee to be Korean Education Minister

July 10, 2014

Kim Myung-soo, a professor at Korea National University of Education and nominee for education minister of South Korea, is facing tough questions from legislators over plagiarism allegations, The Korea Herald reported. Kim is accused of plagiarizing papers he wrote that won him promotion to both associate and full professor and of having students write op-eds that appeared under his name, and of having students teach classes for him. Kim has denied wrongdoing and said that because the papers he is alleged to have plagiarized "contain information that is widely available," he doesn't "think that can be called plagiarism."
