    Dear Editor, I am a contraception doctor working in the UK who reads STI. I have an interest in education. I read Dewsnap et al's publication in this months journal and am shocked as it is almost identical to one from a few years ago. Surely this is blatant Plagiarism although one of the authors is the same. Does the BMJ group know this? is this allowed in the BASHH column. Does BASHH know? does the previous author who wrote the original know (? David Richardson?)

    This should be addressed with COPE?

    Yours Marie

    ATTENTION EDITOR and EDITORIAL TEAM: PLAGERISM

    Please note that this article is almost identical to one written by Daniel Richardson and colleagues in 2017? Did you not use anti plagiarism software? I am an editor of another journal but have keen interest in sexual health and the journal. I am shocked that this has been allowed to go to publication an print. I do not know Daniel Richardson, but they should be informed and action should be taken by you or the BMJ group.
