I’m writing my thesis and I submitted a paper on the same topic to a conference, where it got accepted. However, the contents such as methods, results, and conclusion are identical in text, i.e. I copy pasted the content from thesis to the paper.
Now I want to submit my thesis but I suppose it is self-plagiarism if I don't cite my paper. My question is, can use the same content in my thesis and paper if yes then how do I mention that content is reused? or should I rephrase my complete thesis now and then cite paper? But if I rephrase then how about the experiment results and figures? should I cite paper there as well?
