Avoidance of revealing the side effects of clinical trials.
 1-3-1-Plagiarism is the appropriation of another person’s ideas, processes, results, or words without giving appropriate credit. It ranges from the unreferenced use of others’ published and unpublished ideas, including research grant applications to submission under “new” authorship of a complete paper, sometimes in a different language. It may occur at any stage of planning, research, writing, or publication: it applies to print and electronic versions.
1-3-2-Plagiarism can occur when texts are being cut and pasted without appropriate attribution.
