Shanghai University Disciplines a Professor

Shanghai University (上海大学) has recently completed its investigation of professor Chen Zhanyun (陈湛匀) and concluded that he had committed serious plagiarism in two of his published papers. The investigation found that the papers contain 25% and 30% of plagiarized text, respectively.

Chen Zhanyun was stripped all of his committee appointments and managerial positions. However, it looks like his academic position was not affected.

Chen Zhanyun's academic credentials had been previously challenged on New Threads last year.
