Nazari & Emami Plagiarism on Business Intelligence

Kamran Nazari (Department of Business Intelligence, Payam Noor University, Iran) and Mostafa Emami (Assistant Professor, Payam Noor University, Iran, formerly of Islamic Azad University and Tarbiat Modares University, email) published the article ‘Conceptual and Theoretical Foundations of Business Intelligence’ inĀ Elixir Business Management 46 (2012): 8195-8202 (PDF).


The sections ‘Defining Business Intelligence’ (pp. 8196-8197) and ‘The Intelligence Cycle’ (p. 8197) are plagiarised without attribution from a 2003 Masters essay I wrote for Swinburne University’s Strategic Foresight program on business intelligence (PDF).


I have informed the publisher and Dr Yaghob Fatollahi, Vice-Chancellor for Research Affairs at Tarbiat Modares University.
