This article examines the phenomenon of self-citation which is a widely discussed topic in the broader scientific literature. Self-citation is a natural part of the scientific publishing process as the researchers should cite themselves to avoid plagiarism. In this short review, we examine various aspects of self-citation by considering how authors include their previous work on a specific subject in their bibliography when conducting research on that subject.
