    Article Section editors, kindly look at the thread and do the needful.

    Respected Editors,
    Below listed articles are applied for re-publishing recently. They are deleted/rejected by editor having comment 'Copied Content'. The links given below show the original article written by me at ISC and it was copied at Scribd by any user.

    But the STORY here is that I have copied my own articles? which are actually copied by others and the penalty is being given to the original writer i.e. me.

    The complete instance is notified to Tony Sir via email so that these things can be handled internally but he is on vacation and he asked me to post this problem in the thread.

    I am an Editor at Sister Site 'Techulator' and currently not as active as I was before because of my Ph.D. studies.

    Dear editors, Please look at the links and images given (original vs copied) and decide who has copied. I cannot say anything about editing process but one should be fully aware of when he or she is deleting someone's article which is genuinely written by himself. Do not see the current date but see the original publishing date. Even one has to look at the both the sources carefully.

    For Editor's Kind Information: I am M. Tech in Mechanical and currently pursuing Ph.D. from NIT Surat. All the three rejected articles which are of mechanical subjects are originally written by me.
    Second thing, How can re-published article get deleted if it was fully accepted in 3-4 years ago?



    Please re-look at all articles given below and do the justice to me otherwise, no one can trust the editors again.

    Paresh,

    It is fine to bring up such issues related to submitted posts in the forum.

    It is possible that the editors who previously reviewed an article will be different from those viewing it after some years, when it is republished and will have found copied content now. The sources where same content was found are:
    First article: http://docslide.us/documents/introduction-to-finite-element-analysis-fea-and-element-types-used-in-fea.html

    Second article: http://www.career4engineers.in/Articles/Mechanical/Design-Procedure-Of-Gear-Box-For-Automobile-And-Machine-Tools.aspx

    Third article: http://srmaero.weebly.com/uploads/2/2/4/8/22480700/zeroth_and_first_law_of_thermodynamicss.doc.
    (this shows an error page, but actually opens up a Word doc)

    We will check & compare the dates and discuss the issue with the articles team.

    Keep smiling...one day life will get tired of upsetting you.
