Salami Paper

    « Back to Glossary Index

    The term “salami paper” typically refers to a publishing practice in scientific research where a single study or research project is divided into multiple smaller publications to increase the number of publications and enhance the author’s publication record.

    It is often overlapped content or research findings.

    Salami publishing involves slicing up a larger study into smaller pieces and publishing them in a way that makes it seem like there are more publications than there really are.

    While salami publishing can help you to improve the publication record and increase their chances of being recognized and funded,

    It  also leads to a lack of original research and contribute to the proliferation of redundant or low-quality publications.

    As a result, some scientific journals and organizations have implemented policies to discourage or prevent salami publishing.
