I have published a review paper a few years ago in an important journal which was recently (last month) cited by a review paper related to the topic (published in another journal).
However, a significant part of that new paper (basically an entire section of a few pages) is extremely similar to my paper. It is not copy/paste, but very close. There are several sentences that are almost alike and even match my writing style and line of reasoning, which I consider paraphrasing plagiarism. On top of that, there is a table which was copy/pasted exactly as in my paper.
I feel that my work is not acknowledged and I feel that the authors are publishing this information as it was collected and critically analyzed by them. It took me months of reading and cross checking dozens (if not hundreds) of papers to be able to make the review and summary of that information with confidence and with a critical view. The authors of this new paper do cite my work as a reference here and there, but they present all that information as collected from their own sources.
I just feel that this is not fair and honest, but maybe it's just my feelings and maybe are not doing anything wrong ...
Can you tell me if I have reasons to act on this, and how should I proceed to get my work acknowledged properly?
