Science discovers irony

According to a news item in the January 18 issue of Science, organizers of a scientific conference to take place in Hong Kong next June discovered evidence of apparent plagiarism in a dozen submitted papers. In only two cases did the authors offer explanations deemed acceptable. The meeting in question is the 6th Worldwide Conference on Research Integrity. A couple of the flagged papers were specifically about plagiarism. You can't make this stuff up. In fairness, though, we're talking about 10 out of 430 submissions.
