Download a Plagiarism Check for your Essay!
There is increasing concern in schools, colleges and universities about the problem of plagiarism. Therefore, although a plagiarism check may be something that you're unfamiliar with, it is something you need to understand.
You may, even be unsure as to exactly what plagiarism is and why you would need a plagiarism check. Basically, plagiarism is taking someone else’s work and using it as your ow, which can be easily detected..
As soon as you embark on serious academic life, you will be warned against the dangers of plagiarism but sadly, few academic institutions do much more than warn, when what you really need is help. So, how do you avoid accusations of plagiarism?
One way is to use a plagiarism check like Viper!
Why do I need to carry out a plagiarism check?
You need to carry out a plagiarism check because it is not possible to be absolutely sure when you read through your own work, that you have not left yourself open to the charge of plagiarism, either deliberate or accidental.
You may think that you cannot possibly be accused of plagiarism but just take a moment to consider the way most of us routinely work when beginning an essay.
The basic method is:
- Study the question.
- Decide on your methodology.
- Research and make notes.
Now, think about it. When you are at stage three, you are working with a lot of material, making notes and adding your own opinions. This is quite a complex operation, which only seems less so because it is routine. This is the stage when you are most likely to plagiarise accidentally and when a plagiarism check would be of most use.
You see, the danger is that you will not be sufficiently careful in your referencing when taking notes and then when you come to write up your work, it is all too easy to fall into the trap of incorporating quotations into your work without citation: thus, you will have plagiarised without ever intending to do so!
How will a plagiarism check help me?
A plagiarism check will help you by highlighting areas of potential plagiarism. This means that when you run your work through a plagiarism scanner like Viper, the plagiarism check will produce a report which will highlight, in different colours, areas of possible concern.
Specifically, the plagiarism check will:
- highlight the percentage of work found in sources you have used,
- highlight the percentage of work comprised of quotes in your work,
- highlight the percentage of quote matches in your work,
- highlight the percentage of work suspected of being plagiarised in your work.
As all of these will be coloured differently, you will have no problem seeing where and when, as well as how often these problems occur. So you'll be able to correct these issues not just once, but in the future as well.
So using a plagiarism check like Viper is a good idea?
