Plagiarism, simply known as literary theft, is defined as the practice of using other’s work or ideas in your scientific writing without giving them due credit and passing them off as one’s own in publication journals to gain recognition.
Publishing their research in high-impact journals is a matter of reputation for every scientist or research scholar. However, plagiarism can blemish this reputation and you stand a high chance of rejection by the journal.
If you don’t want this to happen to you, avoid plagiarism and improve your scientific writing
with these easy-to-follow steps:
- To gain expertise in planning and executing your research and drafting your manuscript, join a team of experienced researchers working on few projects.
- Do not copy-paste the exact verbatim from the reference source, understand the idea and paraphrase it to restate in your own words.
- Cite correctly and appropriately any content taken from the reference paper or from your previous published paper.
- Use plagiarism check websites to check for any accidental plagiarism in your manuscript.
- Before submitting your manuscript for publication, get it proofread and edited by professional scientific and medical editors.
Remember, there is no shortcut to success; neither to scientific research, nor scientific writing!
