Some people do research and some people copy and paste in their Book/Thesis and publish
First person: Last month I have found copy and paste work done by a PhD scholar (Naga) who has directly copied and pasted from my article “The Myths of Naga Origin” to his Thesis book and submitted to the University and awarded Doctorate of Philosophy. (It is okay as he has not published his Thesis. However, he may need to edit and ‘quote’ if he wants to publish his Thesis)
Second person: And this time , it is found that Poumai Naga festival written by me (Thohe Pou) is published in the book: “Encyclopaedia of Manipur”, author by Dr. Khomdam Singh Lisam. He has directly copied and pasted in his book: Encyclopaedia of Manipur (In 3 Vols, Page 400-401), published in 2011. He has not given any citation or quote given in his book except the acknowledgment given as Reference Book used for his research work.
