A Dec. 9 Campus Life article about coffee facts plagiarized from several online sources. Some of the wording found in this article is identical to content from cocoajava.com, cofei.com, and bp.com, though this list is not necessarily exclusive; there is no clear original source of this content. These sources are not credited in the article. Other facts in this article very closely follow the structure of coffee facts presented in a webcomic on theoatmeal.com, which is also not credited.
The Tech handles instances of plagiarism seriously. According to The Tech’s staff policies, the newspaper’s Managing Board will review this incident of plagiarism at a February meeting. This note may be updated to reflect the outcome of that meeting.
