Academic plagiarism is a thorny ethical and practical problem.
Perhaps readers have never personally encountered or recognized a case of plagiarism so its immediate interest and relevance may be obscure.
A short case history may provide evidence that the issue of plagiarism is germane to the contemporary academic endeavor.
A young university radiologist recognized his own writing in a professional journal under another's authorship, without attribution to himself, and had no idea what to do about it.
He finally wrote to the author of the article who answered something to the effect that it was indeed a « remarkable coincidence » and that « great minds think alike ».
