Incorrect attribution of somebody else's work or idea as one's own without adequate citation of the original source is called plagiarism. This is considered a serious ethical problem. Most authors do not know that this is unacceptable. Most of them, who know, are not aware what exactly constitutes plagiarism. This editorial is written with an intention to increase awareness regarding this important issue. I discussed the concept and various types of plagiarism, focussing only on biomedical research. Some suggestions on how to be at guard against plagiarism have been discussed.
