The ultimate purpose of research is ‘advancement of knowledge’. All other motives should be secondary. However, that does not seem to be the practice. There are various forms of ‘publication frauds’, one such form is duplicate/redundant publications. According to Committee On Publication Ethics (COPE), issues related to authorship and duplicate publication are the most common types of ethical problems. Duplicate publication occurs when there is partial or complete duplication of data from the same piece of work without proper declaration. The practice was always there, and is on the rise. This editorial is written with an intention to increase awareness regarding this important issue.
