is the use of others' published and unpublished ideas or words (or
other intellectual property) without attribution or permission, and
presenting them as new and original rather than derived from an existing
source. The intent and effect of plagiarism is to mislead the reader as
to the contributions of the plagiarizer. This applies whether the ideas
or words are taken from abstracts, research grant applications,
Institutional Review Board applications, or unpublished or published
manuscripts in any publication format. Plagiarism is scientific
misconduct and should be addressed as such.
to the practice of an author using portions of their previous writings
on the same topic in another of their publications, without specifically
citing it formally in quotes. This practice is widespread and sometimes
unintentional, as there are only so many ways to say the same thing on
many occasions, particularly when writing the methods section of an
article. Although this usually violates the copyright that has been
assigned to the publisher, there is no consensus as to whether this is a
form of scientific misconduct, or how many of one's own words one can
sue before it is truly "plagiarism." Probably for this reason
self-plagiarism is not regarded in the same light as plagiarism of ideas
and words of other individuals. If journals have developed a policy on
this matter, it should be clearly stated for authors."

borrowing of ideas and opinions from an original source and a few
verbatim words or phrases without crediting the author.
