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."
