Cambridge Press error

July 13, 2007

Cambridge University Press will issue an apology and correction after The Times Higher revealed that passages in its Cambridge Companion to D.H. Lawrence had been lifted from a 1960s work without acknowledgement.

The passages appear in a chapter by Con Coroneos, a former Cambridge University lecturer, and Trudi Tate, a fellow of Clare Hall. The Times Higher found a number of phrases identical to those in the late Graham Hough's book The Dark Sun: A Study of D.H. Lawrence .

Kevin Taylor, intellectual property director at CUP, said: "We investigated and found phrases from Dr Hough's book without acknowledgement. The co-authors made notes before writing up their chapter, and Con Coroneos made notes on Dr Hough's book without annotating them, which he later took to be his own words."
