New Publications on Plagiarism and Self-Plagiarism in Project Studies


Two new publications by Associate Professor Joana Geraldi, Department of Organization (IOA), Copenhagen Business School (CBS) on Plagiarism and Self-Plagiarism in Project Studies:

This editorial informs project scholars about plagiarism and Project Management Journal’s (PMJ®) approach to it.
