I just experienced the same thing, except in my case, the woman took my Berserkergang article
from the Viking Answer Lady
website and submitted it to Lambda Alpha
, the journal of the anthropology honor society, presenting it as her work. I totally felt violated.
The editor of Lambda Alpha was horrified when I contacted him, and immediately took several steps to make it right. Immediately, they removed the article (pp. 2-9) of Alpha Lambda Journal 33 (2003)
. They also will be publishing an expanded version of the article under my name as author in an upcoming edition.
I speak with personal knowledge of how distressing it is to find that someone else has stolen your work, and I hope that you end up with a resolution that salves the injury.
Glad to hear there are still some publishers who take plagarism seriously. Thanks for posting this story!
I'm in academia as well. It blows my mind that ANYONE could think that they could get away with stealing an entire article. Generally, our fields are so limited that when something like that pops up, the real author is bound to notice it (or have a colleague in the field bring it to their attention).
Honestly. The stupidity of some people.
I've really enjoyed your website in the past. Great to hear that you got respectful treatment after the initial shock.
