ACKNOWLEDGING AUTHOR(S) SOURCES
Self-plagiarism is a related issue. In this document, we define self-plagiarism as the verbatim or near-verbatim reuse of significant portions of one’s copyrighted work without citing the source. Note that self-plagiarism does not apply to publications based on the author’s own previously copyrighted work (e.g., appearing in conference proceedings) where an explicit reference is made to the prior publication. Such reuse does not require quotation marks to delineate the reused text but does require that the source is cited.
