Self-plagiarism polling: Is it OK, misconduct, or depends?

Potential self-plagiarism is a hot button issue right now in scientific publishing.

Is it ever OK to reuse your own published data or words?

Should it be considered misconduct if you don’t acknowledge it?

If you acknowledge re-use of your own words or data/images is that re-use still a problem?

Or should we not even be calling it “self-plagiarism” because it is so minor an issue?

What do you think?

Take our polls below.
