Abstract

This article deals with the acute problem of self-plagiarism in academic papers. Authors believe that illegitimate text recycling should be considered as a form of unethical behavior in science. Authors describe various methods of self-plagiarism, which have become widespread in the Russian and foreign publishing practice, and consider the criteria allowing to distinguish legitimate text recycling from self-plagiarism. Authors investigate the problem of the text recycling restrictions depending on the genre of an academic paper in which the text of the author has been used for the first time and the genre of the academic paper in which it has been reused. With the information provided in this paper about operating principles of the Antiplagiat software which detects plagiarism, authors conclude that an expert has to analyze full report from the software so he can assess the use of the identified citations and self-citations.
