The question of covert text recycling from previous publications is discussed. It is argued that, consistent with current guidance, authors may be allowed to covertly recycle a limited amount of their previously published material but mainly at the phrase level and only when it is composed of very complex descriptions laden with technical terms for which there are no suitable substitutes. Authors may recycle longer segments of text using standard scholarly conventions of quotation and attributio...

We discuss prior publication and redundancy in contemporary science in the context of changing perceptions of originality in the communication of research results. These perceptions have been changing in the publication realm, particularly in the last 15 years. Presenting a brief overview of the literature, we address some of the conflicts that are likely to arise between authors and editors. We illustrate our approach with conference presentations that are later published as journal articles an...
In this paper I identify some of the more common, problematic writing practices (e.g., plagiarism, selective reporting of literature, and/or results, ‘spin’) found in traditional journal articles, along with associated variables, and suggest ways to correct them. The primary aim of the discussion is to emphasize the cultivation of transparency, excellence in scholarship, and a ‘best practices’ approach to disseminating the results of our research.

A sample of 63 recent editorials on plagiarism, identified through PubMed, was examined for common themes. The sample ranged in length from approximately a single page to several pages. Forty one percent of the editorials included definitions of plagiarism and of self-plagiarism. But, these definitions varied widely in detail and in scope. For example, with respect to recycling authors' own previously published text, what might be perfectly acceptable to one editor may constitute an instance of ...
