This book shall discuss ethics during dissemination and publication of research results. It will discuss the need to give credit where it is due, and will discuss how to prevent unintentional (or accidental) plagiarism of others’ text while writing one’s own manuscript. It will discuss how to prevent allegations of self-plagiarism. And, most importantly, it will also discuss steps that can help to prevent others from usurping credit for your research contributions. It argues that plagiarism of an idea would only be undertaken by someone who can assess the possible validity of an off-the-beaten-track idea, and who must accordingly be an expert. Idea-plagiarism is believed to be practiced by established scientists (whose papers are easily accepted for publication) with the victims being scientists from emerging by-lines (whose papers are not easily accepted for publication). The youth from less-established by-lines are potential victims of idea-plagiarism, and this book is actually an attempt to educate them and empower them with suggested precautions to ensure ownership of their original ideas.

Re: Ethics in Competitive Research: Do not get scooped; do not get plagiarized

This is a very useful and timely book for the young mind. They need direction and also they need to be made aware of their rights. In a hurry to publish, many times this happen that the younger researchers despite having very novel idea miss to claim it. It is very good effort to tell about do's and don'ts in research publications.
