1:15-2:15 Trust, Communication and Academic Publication
  Professor Onora O'Neill, Faculty of Philosophy, University of Cambridge (Baroness O'Neill of Bengarve)
  Writing has always created distinctive problems for communication. Because it is neither face-to-face nor usually two-way, the ordinary means we use to check what others say and undertake are missing, and the intelligent placing and refusal of trust is harder. Academic publication has always aimed high in providing alternative ways for readers to check and challenge what they read, but this is changing as the ‘community of scholars’ becomes a globalised community of greater diversity. What balance can we achieve between various aims such as checking authenticity, assessing reputation and judging quality?

  The CrossCheck plagiarism detection service has been running for almost 18 months and over 60 CrossRef members have added their content to the database. Many of these publishers have now started to screen manuscripts using the iThenticate system, and are adapting their editorial workflows accordingly. This session will give an update on the progress of CrossCheck, with first-hand feedback from three publishers on how they are incorporating plagiarism screening and the issues and results that they are encountering.
   
3:30-4:00 Break
   
4:00-4:45 Plagiarism in the Academy: Now What Do We Do?
  T. Scott Pluchak Director, Lister Hill Library of the Health Sciences, University of Alabama at Birmingham
  CrossRef’s CrossCheck service is one of a growing number of tools that are being used to identify possible plagiarism in the scientific literature.  As these tools become more widely available, it is incumbent upon editors and journal publishers to insure that they have adequate policies in place for identifying plagiarism and dealing with suspected instances appropriately.  This presentation will review the current status of “plagiarism awareness” and discuss some of the approaches that publishers are taking to address the issue.
