For professors, writers, journalists and linguists.
It is one thing to say that everything is written and that since ancient Greece nothing new has been invented and quite another is to directly copy the work of others without citing the source and / or attributing the merit.
Formerly we copied the content of multimedia encyclopedias like Microsoft Encarta. Some did not bother to remove the copyright mark that accompanied any exported content.
Now a days students literally copy Wikipedia content and everything points to it being the usual tone for those who do not like to write.
But it is not the same to copy a phrase or paragraph as an appointment to copy entire fragments, because here we fall into plagiarism, already existing in the paper Age and very common on the Internet era.
But there are always one or more solutions to a problem, and in the case of plagiarism, we have text analyzers that can tell us if the two documents compared are identical or simply have similarities.
Microsoft Word, for example, offers this option from its 2007 version onward’s. From Review> Compare we can compare two versions of a document, or rather, two different documents.
Let’s see more plagiarism detectors in online version to be used directly from your web browser, simply by pasting texts or importing the content of the documents.
Compatible with dozens of languages (more than 190), Plagiarisma is a service that allows us to find plagiarism through Google or Bing.
This allows us to paste the text in a blank field, provide the URL where the original document is hung, select it from Google Drive or upload a file in TXT, HTML, RTF, DOC, DOCX, PPTX, XLSX, XLS, PDF format, ODT, EPUB or FB2.
In addition to being available in online format, we can download your official Android application or install a plugin for the Moodle educational platform.
Another good plagiarism detector is PlagScan, available in several versions. The free allows up to 2,000 words per search.
After providing the original document, PlagScan performs a search in different sources and returns a PDF where it indicates the copied or plagiarized fragments along with links to where this plagiarism has been found.
An advantage of PlagScan is that it allows you to choose between four types of reports according to what you are looking for. On the other hand, it differentiates mere quotes from plagiarism.
