We performed a research in the large-scale randomized design, based on the result of a pilot study in the small, non-randomized design. When writing the manuscript, the expression in the sections of introduction, methods and discussion are inevitable to be similar or duplicated with the ones of the manuscript for the pilot study. Even if we state the background (like the 1st sentence in this question), is this submission regarded as a duplicate submission?
