In a related development, the Chronicle of Higher Education said in a story today that Poshard’s 1975 master’s thesis at SIU also appears to have some portions lifted from other sources without proper attribution. The issues with the master’s thesis are "considerably more minor" than those found in the dissertation, "but suggest a similar cut-and-paste methodology," the story says.
