Secondly, the manuscript plagiarism occurs when authors take the substantial part of another authors' work, without citation. The meaning of "substantial taking" here can be understood as copying anothers' ideas, both in terms of quantity and quality, which potentially eliminates the original author's rights, in the context of intellectual property.
