First and Largest Academic Social Network of LIS Professionals in India
Now a days so many professionals in all areas are wrote journal papers to some journals.
How much quality in that journal papers we must know, because some authors make copy from other papers.
They download some old papers from various sites and collect data from different different papers. They just do copy and paste and make it as a new paper.
My request is any paper which is published in any journal must be checked by the given reference with plagiarism or any new method. Because the actual writer's hard work overwrite the copier.
My request is kindly check the paper with the given reference under the paper. The real writer and hard worker come to fame.
It helps to control copy right.

Dear Sri Narayana Murthy,
Thanks for your post.
Your concern is just and proper.
However, as I understand a section of the papers are real quality papers. All are not "Copy & Paste" type!
Admittedly, a fair number of such articles/papers fall short of expectations and as I believe, they were written because of compulsion of Publishing!! as they are directly linked with assessment for getting higher pay scales in service.
I am absolutely sure that had there been no such mandates, only those who are genuinely capable of writing papers (or doing research) would contribute.
At times, when there was no such compulsion, people used to write articles in journals or present papers in conferences because they were genuinely concerned/interested on the issues and wanted to share their views among their peers. As such, quantitatively, they were small but qualitatively, they were mostly sound.
