Two part question
For a revised paper following a review by referees, to what extent is each of the following acceptable or unacceptable:
- Use the exact sentence from a report without quotations or acknowledgement of the source?
- Use a series of sentences (almost) verbatim from a report without quotations or acknowledgment of the source?
- Repeatedly engage in 1. or 2., possibly to the point where sum total of a page in the revised draft are unattributed quotations from a report?
What the reviewer should do in case #3 above, when reviewing the revision in a subsequent round. Should this be brought up in the report for the authors? In private communication with the editor? Both? Neither?
