Writer accuses former columnist at The Stanford Review of plagiarism

Friday, April 19, 2013

The Stanford Review says it’s investigating whether an article it published last April plagiarized a 2006 piece by Dan Cassavaugh for Imprint Magazine. The Review is a student newspaper that publishes every two weeks when classes are in session. The Stanford Daily writes about it, and posts links to each piece. An excerpt:

A comparison of the Imprint article—The Other Side: College Athletes Shouldn’t Be Paid, by Dan Cassavaugh—and The Review article—Should College Athletes Get Paid? by Vasant Ramachandran ‘11 M.S. ‘12—shows distinct similarities in structure and phrasing, including one paragraph (the second-to-last in both cases) that is almost identical between the two versions.
