Reviewer quits record mag after being called out for plagiarismmain
The current furore around American Record Guide has claimed its first casualty.
Woodwinds specialist Wai Kit Leung cast his eye over some of its reviews and found one from 2016 that looked familiar. That’s because it lifted bits of text from one of his own record reviews in another magazine.
The reviewer, to his credit, was contrite. He told Wai Kit Leung ‘After thinking it over, I wish to further apologize; and I have decided to give up my role as a reviewer for American Record Guide because of my poor judgment in this matter.’
Since he has done the right thing, we have withheld the offender’s identity.
