Once again the issue of various aspects of publication ethics raises its head. The author has pointed out how another article in the journal has a lot of matter from various sources. It is important for authors / potential authors to read articles (this is a Letter to the Editor) like these and understand the rights and wrongs of medical writing / authorship. Do read the author’s response and the Editor’s remarks to understand the issues well. Strongly recommended for medical students.
