Plagiarism is using someone else’s work without properly any acknowledgment or citation. This is considered publication misconduct as it involves close imitation or complete copying of someone’s data, ideas, figures, tables, complete or parts of paragraphs, language and images, etc.
Self-plagiarism or Text recycling refers to the author reusing their work without proper citation. This is also considered malpractice and creates duplication of the data in the academic literature.
