Checking texts for plagiarism — how and why
Checking texts for plagiarism or “plagiarism” is the process of determining the presence or absence of originality of a text by comparing it with other texts from various sources to identify any similarities or borrowings. This process can be important for educational institutions, scientific research, and for quality control of content in media and marketing.
There are tools and online services that help in checking texts for plagiarism. Some are free, while others require a paid subscription or per-check fee.
When choosing a plagiarism checking tool, it is important to consider its accuracy, speed, and availability of features. In addition, security and confidentiality requirements must be taken into account when processing sensitive information.
