The importance of checking for plagiarism

Using less than a paragraph can be counted as plagiarism for some institutions, that's why it's important to always check and to add sources or citations if they are needed. You might think that your content is original, however, you might find out that someone else has claimed the idea as their own, that's why even inadvertent plagiarism of one or two sentences can cause serious consequences in some cases. For some students, plagiarism could mean failing, academic probation, or worse.

Recommendations When Looking For Plagiarism

Use Large Amounts of Text

It is easier for a plagiarism detection algorithm to check for plagiarism when it has more text to search for. You can include multiple paragraphs, or entire pages. More content means it is more likely to find plagiarized sources.

Keep Similar Content Together

Because plagiarism detection searches for multiple texts at once, it will have improved search results by combining similar content. For best results, do not break up similar content when doing a plagiarism check.

Avoid Searching for Generic Phrases

If something is generic and likely to show up on multiple websites, the plagiarism check will always result in a large percentage of plagiarism. This will not provide much insight when deciding to turn in the assignment or submit the work.

Avoid Searching for Short Phrases

Short phrases are almost always likely to be plagiarised. This is because

Avoid Searching For Cited Sources

Because plagiarism analysis looks for content that can be found on the internet, if you have cited a source that would show up in the result, you should omit that particular sentence or paragraph since it is likely to return plagiarized results.

How Plagiarism Detection Works

Plagiarism detection usually works by checking the entire internet for key words or phrases in the body of text that are useful to identify possible sources of the text content. This is both useful for detecting plagiarism as well as finding possible sources. The other way plagiarism detection works is by checking a large body of submitted documents. This method requires a large database of text works which are typically only available to the main organization that owns and publishes those works. Our plagiarism detector works by searching the internet database for potential plagiarised sources to determine if the content is unique or plagiarized.

Automatically Include Citations

Smodin's plagiarism checker is the only plagiarism checker that also includes citations and bibliography information for plagiarized sources automatically. Auto-citation allows you to cite text from plagiarized sources to correctly reference the authors of that work and avoid plagiarism. Auto citation is an easy way to avoid plagiarism. We offer citations in multiple languages and many of the most popular citation styles. If you would like any additional citation features or a specific citation style added, please contact us!

What are Citation Styles?

Citation is a way to avoid plagiarism. A work is not considered plagiarized if you site the origional source. You can more easily guard against plagiarism by using the auto citation feature in the Smodin plagiarism checker. The professor, field of study, or academic institution typically chooses which style you should use for citing authors, books, academic works, and other sources that could be considered plagiarized. You should always make sure to double check the citation style your using so that you can successfully avoid plagiarism. There are numerous citation styles available in our citation generator, also known as a citation machine.

Tips to Avoid Plagiarism

Keep Track of Sources

Keep notes on where your information is coming from. Forgetting to cite your sources could result in assignments considered as plagiarism.

Use a Plagiarism Checker Before you Submit Your Work

Sometimes you might forget to cite a source or add quotes around a verbatim statement. It is also possible that the information you wrote down was referenced from a source you do not remember referencing. For best anti-plagiarism results, it is best to use a plagiarism checker before you submit your work.

Paraphrase or Quote Sources

It may seem obvious, but if you forget to paraphrase or quote sources your work will be more likely to show up as plagiarized. Make sure that you do not put down information from sources verbatim unless you put it inside brackets or quotes.

Use a Rewriter or Idea Generator for Assistance

It can be difficult to paraphrase content if it is not in your native language or you are out of ideas. To improve your ability to avoid plagiarism, using a text rewriter, spinner, or paraphrase machine can assist in rewriting content.
