Plagiarism Tool Itself
How does your plagiarism checking tool work?
Our plagiarism tool compares every uploaded paper to more than 14 trillion web pages, books, articles, student papers, and other material. In order to check the paper, you will have to spend credits. You can buy them or earn them for free by spreading information about our plagiarism checker on social media platforms, such as Facebook and Twitter.
You are able to upload paper of any size (in pages). Once the check has started, your results are ready in a matter of minutes (checking times may vary and some cases may take longer than usual.) As soon as the check is complete, you will be able to see:
– similarity and concentration scores.;
– a detailed report with highlighted similarities and links to their sources.
Does your plagiarism tool scan the internet for plagiarism?
Our plagiarism tool compares uploaded documents with more than 14 trillion web pages, books, articles, periodicals, reports, research papers, and student works. That is the biggest stated scan base among plagiarism detection services worldwide.
What kind of documents does you plagiarism tool accept?
You can upload .doc, .docx and .odt formats.
What information will I receive after the check?
You will receive the following:
Similarity score. This score shows the amount of possibly plagiarized text in comparison to all other text. For example, 50 percent means that half of your document is similar to original papers.
Concentration score. This score shows how much the matches are distributed across the paper. A low score signifies that matches are in small sentences (with a low probability of being plagiarized). A high score alerts that matches are large and most likely plagiarized.
Highlighted matches. The matched text will be colored so it is easier for you to stay focused on the most critical parts of your document.
Original sources. All matches will have links back to their original sources.
What is the best way to deal the plagiarism after I check my paper?
There are two ways to deal with plagiarism; either quote and properly cite the plagiarized sentences, or completely remove them from your paper.
You could also use our online editing tool which will help you to remove any plagiarized instances in your paper.
What similarity score is allowed and why?
We recommend that you do not exceed a similarity score of 5 percent and no more than a one-star concentration score. The reason for this is that in most cases matches up to 5 percent are treated as “technical” (many widely used phrases, for instance, “The United States of America” ). If you score more than recommended, make some changes and check your paper again.
