What is Plagiarism?

Plagiarism is when an author attempts to pass off someone else works as his or her own. Duplicate publication, sometimes called self-plagiarism, occurs when an author reuses substantial parts of his or her own published work without providing the appropriate references. This can range from getting an identical paper published in multiple journals, to salami-slicing, where authors add small amounts of new data to a previous paper.

If research misconduct, fraud, or plagiarism is suspected, editors will follow the COPE guidelines and reserve the right to inform authors or their institution.
