Plagiarism is when an author attempts to steal of or pass off another person's work and ideas as his/her own. Sometimes, duplicate publication called self-plagiarism will happen when an author reuses the content of one's own published work without citing the appropriate references. This can vary from getting a similar paper published in many journals, where contributors can add small amounts of new and novel data to a previous article.
