Prof Liana Mos from the Faculty of Medicine Pharmacy and Dentistry from “Vasile Goldis” Western University, Arad, Romania, together with 6 other authors, were identified to have plagiarized extensively within their article entitled “Cytokine and atherogenesis“, published by the “Arad Medical Journal” in 2009, as confirmed by international experts below.
Among the 7 authors are:
- Prof Liana Mos - Dean of the Faculty of Medicine, Pharmacy and Dentistry.
- Prof Corina Zorila - Vice-Dean.
- Prof Coralia Cotoraci - a Professor at the time of writing, today the Rector of the university.
- Dr Ioana Dana Alexa - Associate Professor and Vice-Dean of the Faculty of Medicine at “Gr. T Popa” University.
The full list of authors is found in the Report section further below.
Among other sanctions to be applied to the journal and to the authors, the international experts below recommend that the authors should be cut off from funding sources and blocked from obtaining promotions. From the list above we can see that a Professor became Rector of the University the moment that this article was published. We can only speculate about the fate should this case had been surfaced earlier . . .
