Writers on plagiarism guilty themselves of plagiarism?

A post in Discover mentions the situation of a paper on plagiarism copying (without proper attribution) from another source:

Regular readers will know that I have an interest in plagiarism. Today I discovered an amusing case of plagiarism in a paper about plagiarism.

The paper is called The confounding factors leading to plagiarism in academic writing and some suggested remedies. It recently appeared in the Journal of the Pakistan Medical Association (JPMA) and it’s written by two Saudi Arabia-based authors, Salman Yousuf Guraya and Shaista Salman Guraya.


As background, see the 2010 post on IPBiz:

and the 2009 post on IPBiz:

Nothing new in the revelation in Discover.
