Plagiarism in research papers

Post by Lin »

I got a paper rejected due to high similarity with my previous paper. I thought that reusing text from my on paper is ok. Is that normal? Do i need to rewrite definitions?

That is not OK. It is called the self-plagiarism. Yes you read that right. You may face a problem because you copy your own text rather than copying the text of other people.

So be careful about that. It is better to always not copy text from any other papers and try to rewrite in your idea or cite properly when citation must be given to acknowledge the work of others.

Yes, self-plagiarism is not something to take lightly in recent years. Publisher checks and compare papers to find the similarity and can easily reject a paper that is too similar to other papers (even your papers).
