How do you check for plagarism

Recommended Posts

So after reading several threads, I am starting to get that plagiarism is an occasional problem for writers even writers of fanfiction. I am curious how do you guys go about finding plagiarism beyond just the natural google search?

Is it through fans? Do you use a plagiarism checker? Like http://www.copyscape.com/compare.php or https://www.paperrater.com/ ?

P.S. I am not sure if the suggestions place is the best place to have a discussion about this. If you admins or mods know of a better one, then feel free to move this discussion.

We use a variety of tools, and certainly don't limit ourselves to using Google searches exclusively :)

Call me curious, but can you give examples? :D

As one who assists in this area, I will state publicly that, no, we will not give examples. The resources we employ depend on the nature of the plagiarism. We take the accusations and the proof with great seriousness. If you'd like to assist in this area, I recommend that you IM DemonGoddess directly to become part of the staff. :)

That's truly easy to find plagiarism parts, because there are lots of different programs that can detect them. But if you doubt, you can easily go to another writing service and ask them to mark by special proofreading symbols the parts, where we can find plagiarism. Nothing can be easier!

While it’s true there are programs that can assist in detecting plagiarism, it’s not our only tool, nor is it ever as simple as merely identifying identical text.
