Plagiarism at Ilahia College of Engineering and Technology by Nasreen Ali A and Arunkumar M

I have recently found another case of plagiarism from India. It is by  two professors from the Ilahia College of Engineering and Technology  named Nasreen Ali A ( arunpvmn@gmail.com )  and Arunkumar M at Ilahia.

The plagiarized paper

The plagiarized paper is the following:

asreen Ali A.1 , Arunkumar M. Mining High Utility Itemsets from its Concise and Lossless Representations. IOSR Journals (IOSR Journal of Computer Engineering), 1(17), pp.8-14. ( https://pdfs.semanticscholar.org/5f8f/bd04d6e6a0a02c12b83c66d40bd44449a601.pdf )

Plagiarized paper by Arunkumar M and Nasreen Ali A at Ilahia College of Engineering

The paper plagiarized my paper describing the FHM algorithm, which was published at ISMIS 2014.  Basically, these two authors have copied the algorithm and claim that it is their algorithm. They even claim that they have proposed the new EUCP strategy which was proposed in my ISMIS 2014 paper.

This is unacceptable. I will thus contact the editor so that this paper will be removed from this journal named IOSR Journal of Computer Engineering. Moreover, I will also contact the head of this college called the  Ilahia College of Engineering and Technology/ Mahatma Gandhi University, India to report this serious case of plagiarism.

The journal where the plagiarized paper was pulished is called ( IOSR Journal of Computer Engineering http://www.iosrjournals.org/IOSR-JCE.html ). It appears to be some unknown journal that charge a fee to get published and obtain a certificate of publication.  I had never heard of that journal or publisher before.

About plagiarism in India

Unfortunately, it is not the first time that some researchers from India have plagiarized my papers. I think that it happened three times already only in 2016, and at least five or six times in the last two or three years.  Plagiarism is of course not limited to India. My papers have been plagiarized also by people from France, Algeria, and other countries. And it should be said that there are many very good Indian researchers and universities. From my experience, it seems that the plagiarism issue in India is mostly in small universities.

2nd December 2016 

On the 2nd December, I have sent the following e-mail to the Ilahia College of Engineering of Engineering and the journal, to let them know about this serious incident:

Plagiarism at the Ilahia College of Engineering 2

I immediately received an answer from the journal the day after and they have removed the paper

28 December 2016

However, four weeks after having contacted the college, I sill did not receive any answer from the Ilahia College of Engineering.

Thus, today, I have sent another e-mail:
Plagiarism at the Ilahia College of Engineering

I hope that they will handle this case seriously.

Conclusion

I will keep you updated about what happens about this case of plagiarism. I am looking forward to see what the Ilahia College of Engineering will do, for these two professors who have committed plagiarism.

    Hi Philippe,
    Thank you for posting these wonderful blogs which I started following recently.
    I regret to hear that your papers are being copied in my home country (India) & I heard about this college which is in my part of India. It is a newborn college & am not surprised that it’s faculties did this, as most of such new-born colleges are totally profit oriented & employ sub-standard faculty. Most of the faculties will be recent college pass outs who couldn’t land in a descent job. They look at the teaching time as a break to prepare for other jobs.
    Please don’t expect any reply/action from the college anyways. You will be lucky to hear a ‘sorry/regret message ‘ at least. Please don’t get disappointed about these & there are people like us who admire your contributions.

    • Hello Sreenath,
      Thanks for reading the blog and commenting, and thanks for the information. 🙂 I still did not receive a reply from the principal of that college. So, as you say, I think that they might not answer me. In that case, I will just leave that page there, so that at least people will know about that. Then, when people will search for that college, they may find this page, and they will know about it. This may put some pressure on them to take some action to fix this issue.

      Best regards and happy new year.
