I want to re-publish my research data with revised analysis. Is this considered acceptable?
Thank you for reaching out to us with your query. As per the existing research ethics guidelines, the same study can be published with different analyses and conclusions, provided you cite the original work and provided the deductions are sufficiently new and genuinely unique. But there are some rules that need to be kept in mind. Check the target journal’s author guidelines and try to send a pre-submission query, if that facility is made available to you by your target journal. Repetition of data should be minimal. You need to emphasize more on the data analysis. If the analyses and the conclusions are not sufficiently novel/unique and if you cannot differentiate them from those already published, then you might be charged with self-plagiarism.
