KU Censures Scientist Over Plagiarism Allegations

KSAL StaffDecember 12, 2013

The University of Kansas has censured a former senior scientist in the Kansas Geological Survey over plagiarism allegations.

A university committee found that Marios Sophocleous, a hydrology scientist, engaged in plagiarism and self-plagiarism in seven journal articles dealing with hydrology and groundwater.

Sophocleous denies the allegations. He says he never copied the work of others or his own. Sophocleous joined the Kansas Geological survey in 1978 as an assistant scientist and was a senior scientist from 1987 to 2013, when he retired.

Jill Jess, a university spokeswoman, declined to elaborate on details of the censure, which the university announced Wednesday. Rex Buchanan, interim director of the KGS, referred questions to Jess.
