[beliefs] Re: charges of plagiarism

The definition of scientific plagiarism is claiming the work of others for
your own. Bela Scheiber did that. For anyone's reference, Sampson has a
copy of Sarner's 1992 17-page document. I believe I sent a copy to the
Bullough's at the time. I remember Bonnie called me back, concerned that
some of the fellow Sarner's criticisms of nursing sounded sexist.

Scheiber and Selby are no strangers to questionable publication. Check
their article in SI on the UAB TT study's "final report." The whole piece
was built around a mere 3-page progress report, not the final report at
all. To the best of our knowledge, no clarification was ever printed,
though the matter was brought to the attention of SI editors.
