    G. Murugesan and Dr C. Chellappan Plagiarism Case - Anna University, India

    We were informed that a paper recently published contains plagiarized texts from other already published articles. Here's the details:

    Paper Title: An Economical Model for Optimal Distribution of Loads for Grid Applications
    Journal Reference: (IJCNS) International Journal of Computer and Network Security, Vol. 1, No. 1, pp 62-66, October 2009
    Authors: G. Murugesan and Dr C. Chellappan
    Authors' Affiliation: Department of Computer Science and Engineering Anna University, Chennai 600 025, India
    Paper Link: www.ijcns.org/papers/Vol.1_No.1/091010.pdf

    While we went through the paper (not completely), we found that texts at different location of the paper were copied word by word from the following listed articles (by the way, you can check yourself, do the search on Google):

    1. Multi-Source Grid Scheduling for Divisible Loads by TG Robertazzi (2006)
    Link: http://ieeexplore.ieee.org/iel5/4067758/4067759/04067800.pdf?arnumber=4067800
    Link: http://citeseerx.ist.psu.edu/viewdoc/download?doi=10.1.1.61.9294&rep=rep1&type=pdf

    2. QoS Guided Min-Min Heuristic for Grid Task Scheduling by HE Xiaoshan
    Link: http://citeseerx.ist.psu.edu/viewdoc/download?doi=10.1.1.75.9892&rep=rep1&type=pdf

    3. A static jobs scheduling for independent jobs in Grid Environment by using Fuzzy C-Mean and Genetic algorithms by S Lorpunmanee (2006)
    Link: http://eprints.utm.my/3338/1/A_static_jobs_scheduling_for_independent_jobs_in_Grid_Environment.pdf

    4. Grid Scheduling Divisible Loads from Multiple Sources via Linear Programming by M.A. Moges (2004)
    Link: http://www.actapress.com/Abstract.aspx?paperId=17820

    5. Resource-Aware Distributed Scheduling Strategies for Large-Scale Computational Cluster/Grid Systems by S Viswanathan (2007)
    Link: http://ieeexplore.ieee.org/iel5/71/4302721/04302731.pdf?tp=&arnumber=4302731&isnumber=4302721

    6. Divisible Load Scheduling for Grid Computing by D Yu (2003)
    Link: http://www.ee.sunysb.edu/~tom/MATBE/div-grid.pdf

    We stop reviewing this article at page number 2, column 1, as the amount of copied texts is ENORMOUS!!!! A REAL SHAME!!!

    Due to limited resources we won't be able to go through the entire paper which is 5 pages long!! So definitely, there may be other people works that these people have plagiarized!! We will be grateful if someone can check this and report to us so that we can update this post for all our readers.

    We further noticed that they published a similar paper, probably with a 80%-90% similarities in the content (trying to hit 2 birds with 1 stone):

    Paper Title: An Economic Allocation of Resources for Multiple Grid Applications
    Journal Reference: Proceedings of the World Congress on Engineering and Computer Science 2009 Vol I WCECS 2009, October 20-22, 2009, San Francisco, USA
    Authors: G. Murugesan and Dr C. Chellappan
    Link: http://www.iaeng.org/publication/WCECS2009/WCECS2009_pp213-217.pdf

    These 2 authors can be contacted at: murugesh02@gmail.com and rcc@annauniv.edu

  4. Here is a new type of Junk IEEE email.
    It is not for junk conferences by IEEE, but for a a guy aspiring to ... IEEE President Position.
    It is a funny IEEE junk Email!



    Dear Colleague,

    You may have already received the message from the IEEE, concerning the elections for the IEEE Signal Processing Society.

    Please take a minute to visit the respective site and cast your vote (https://eballot3.votenet.com/IEEE_SE)

    I am one of the candidates and I would appreciate it if you could consider voting for me. If you think that I deserve it, you may also consider encouraging other colleauges to vote, if this is possible. My CV is provided in the above IEEE site.

    Best Regards

  6. This IAENG stuff is spam for a fake, or at least very low-quality,
    conference. They've been doing it for years. They'll accept almost
    anything as a submission. The catch is that you pay for your submission
    to be printed in a publication that nobody will read.

    Here's how some people counterattack:
