Hi Stuart Grant, I am glad you mentioned that as it happened to me too. The leadership article I submitted to Vocal was extracted from one of my Medium articles and they kindly asked verification. I was happy about it and provided them with evidence of ownership. It is an excellent approach. My respect increased for Vocal. I don’t know about overall Medium but my publication checks plagiarism rigorously as mentioned in this story.
