Special Lecture on Research Ethics and Graduate School of Business Meeting
 

 
On June 7th, the Special Lecture on Research Ethics and the Graduate School of Business Meeting of the first semester of the 2019 academic year was held at B205 of Hyundai Motor Building. About 60 graduate students attended.
 

The Special Lecture on Research Ethics was given by Nam Hyung-doo, a professor at the Yonsei University Law School, under the theme of "Honest Writing Free from Plagiarism." "Plagiarism is technically different from the copyright law," Professor Nam Hyung-doo said. "To understand plagiarism, we have to distinguish it from the copyright law." As for the concept ‘paraphrasing,’ He said, "this is a type of 'plagiarism' that does not violate the copyright law, but what will be criticized ethically." "Thus, plagiarism is a concept that includes elements of copyright infringement and ethical criticism. There can be no homage in academia," Professor Nam added. "When you bring in someone else's opinion, you must state the source honestly," he emphasized.
 
The meeting was followed by Kim Baeho, Associate Dean for Research. He briefly explained about Graduate School requirements for graduation, thesis issues, and the BK21 Plus Business. Kim concluded the meeting by encouraging graduate students to study, saying, "There will be many times when it is hard to keep going," and added, "even so, it is research that creates the possibility of making a big difference in the future with one's small idea."
