How to Get the Most Accurate Scan Results
Submitting a document to be scanned requires thinking before the actual scan is processed. Are you checking to make sure you included all of you references? Do you think there is foul play like direct plagiarism included in the text? We make it easy to get the results you are looking for.
The easiest way to check if a few references or quotes have been included (sometimes as requested by teachers) is to do a scan and see how many exact matches appear. This makes it easy as a teacher (or student who will then shared the report with their teacher) to easily spot the quoted text.
It’s All in the Filter
Many teachers and editors are looking for the easiest way to check that their students didn’t plagiarize. Every teacher has their own standard and determines what level of text similarity is acceptable for them. If you are looking just for identical matches, you can eliminate minor changes and related text results from appearing. Of course you can show all relevant results if all levels of similarity are important for determining the authenticity of the work.
Many sources online actually republish articles from around the web immediately after the first article has been published. This is why you can see the same news worthy item written exactly the same and republished by various outlets around the state or country. If you are checking to see if others have taken your content, don’t get worried if you see this. It’s typically one news outlet that operates dozens and even hundreds of other news sources. If you want to focus on a few specific sources, you can always hide the results that are irrelevant.
Navigating through different results becomes easier when you know how to fine-tune the Copyleaks filter feature.
