Acknowledging Author(s) Sources
A related topic is self-plagiarism. We define self-plagiarism in this text as the use of major portions of one's own copyrighted work verbatim or almost verbatim without referencing the original source. Self-plagiarism does not apply to publications based on the author's own previously copyrighted work (e.g., appearing in a conference proceedings) when the preceding publication is explicitly referenced. This type of reuse does not necessitate the use of quotation marks to distinguish the reused material, but it does necessitate the citation of the source.
