The series features useful content from AJE's Author Resource Center focused on successful research communication.

Sometimes plagiarism is intentional. Sometimes, it is not.

Even if plagiarism is unintentional, the results can be the same.

If the mistake is detected by a journal before being published, it will be rejected and the author’s reputation is at risk.

If the plagiarism is realized after publication, the paper will be retracted and the author’s offense would be known publicly.

To help you better understand plagiarism and how to avoid it, AJE has a collection of resources: “Plagiarism in Academic Writing: How to Identify and Avoid It.”

You'll learn the definition of plagiarism and self-plagiarism, suggestions for avoiding it, and how to understand an iThenticate report.
