York withdraws PhD

November 16, 2007

York University has withdrawn a PhD from a senior academic at Durham University after an investigation into plagiarism. Tony Antoniou stepped down as dean of Durham's Business School when the allegations first surfaced in September, but he remains a professor at Durham. York this week said that the award, for the 1986 thesis, "Futures Markets: Theory and Tests", was being withdrawn.

Professor Antoniou is also facing disciplinary action by Durham after an investigation into a separate 1988 journal paper that had also used material, without acknowledgement, from other sources.
