Research Ethics, Publication Ethics, Plagiarism, Santosh Kumar Yadav


Research is an adventurous endeavor. It poses many challenges and difficulties. A person undertaking research needs supervision and guidance to avoid problems and successfully complete the research. A typical problem in the field of research is plagiarism. After University Grants Commission mandated universities and colleges to teach 2-credit course in “Research and Publication Ethics”, a book with the same title authored by Dr. Santosh Kumar Yadav comes as a timely guidebook for thousands of research scholars from India and beyond. This study critically evaluates the book to bring out its merits and demerits.

Yadav’s book is not only suitable for research scholars from various disciplines but also for librarians, academicians, educationists and researchers running different institutions. It explains different concepts at length and offers advice on effective implementation strategies of promoting research integrity at institutional level, minimizing plagiarism and publicizing research output for a wider reach through technological platforms. The book is extensive in information yet simple and precise in explanation.
