The controversy increases over the allegedly plagiarized thesis of Jorge Glas, AP candidate for the Ecuadorian vice presidency. Apparently the academic paper has several chapters copied from at least two other thesis and the website www.rincondelvago.com
These copies were made without citing the source from where they came, thus social networks users have begun to discuss the possibility of plagiarism from the possible vice president of Rafael Correa. In 2008, Glas did his thesis with teammate Luis Calle Gomez to graduate as an Electrical Engineer, with a Electronics Specialization in the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering.
In Chapter 1 of Glas thesis, called “spread spectrum” that goes from page 19 to 29, includes text and graphics obtained from the website of El Rincon del Vago. The copied document is from “Spread spectrum” a seemingly academic text, of Mexico, whose author’s name cannot be identified.
While in Chapter 2, entitled “Spread Spectrum Simulations’ reproduces the letter of Patricia Chavez Herrera and Antonio Reinoso Burbano, a thesis presented in 2004. For these allegations Glas said through his Twitter account that “what they call plagiarism is the theoretical framework that takes as source of other academic thesis.”
