Reunion: Chikungunya Plagiarism

Scientist blogger LSZ Blog complains (Fr) about the widespread non-attributed reproduction of litteral portions of an article he recently posted on his blog about chikungunya fever. His unattributed work has appeared on other websites but also in an article by Reunion colleagues in a scientific print publication. He has written one of the authors and awaits an answer.

    my relatives are in coimbatore and recently(dec 20,2006) being affected by chickungunya . It looks like it still hasn’t been controlled in coimbatore. They are suffering very badly. its been 2 weeks,since they were admitted in hospital.more than a week in Intensive care unit.
    various symptoms are seen. including adhoc memory loss.
    hope its controlled soon, before it comes another round..
