In every research, timely reporting and documenting its outcome is an ethical necessity—dissemination of finding through preparing the manuscript based on guidelines and principles. In clinical research, presenting findings in a meaningful way is equally important. Sometimes researchers take help from other people, those who were not involved in a particular research group or study. This is known as “Ghostwriting”.
