How Does Plagiarism Checker Tool Work

Plagiarism is a widely discussed topic these days. Everyone has access to a plagiarism checker today, including teachers and professors, as well as students. This is no longer something that is practiced only on book material or formal text. Nowadays, the anti-plagiarism software is a highly valued tool in many circles, especially the academic ones. 

But, do you know what is a plagiarism checker and how it works? Plagiarism is bad for many reasons, and that expand beyond getting caught or getting in trouble. These software tools aim to detect people who commit fraud. In many situations, plagiarizing something is illegal. 

In this article, you’ll learn how to detect plagiarism, as well as how these tools make it happen.

What Is a Plagiarism Checker?

Plagiarism checkers are advanced software solutions that scan for copied content i.e. content that is a match with existing texts. These are very often used by schools to scan their students’ assignments. Students also use them to check their own work and avoid unintentional plagiarism. 

With the right essay plagiarism checker by fixgerald.com, you can ensure that you won’t get into any academic trouble. Due to the development of web resources, professors often check their students’ work for copied content. If they catch you in the act, you’d be in a lot of trouble. While it is not illegal to use it in school, if you get caught stealing content from someone else, you will get a low grade, lose your reputation as a good student, and possibly even get a penalty.

There are many scanners for plagiarism these days. Before you opt for one, you need to know that not all of them are good at scanning or detecting copied content. Some will scan only some pieces of the content and search for similar sets of words, or have limited content to compare it to. 

Good checkers will scan the content and compare it to an enormous database of sources and point out to the content you need to change.

How Do Plagiarism Checkers Work?

Now we’ve come to the main question: how do plagiarism checkers work? If you want to use a scanner, the process is usually pretty straightforward. You just need to paste your content or attach the file that contains it, and run it through the scanner. This is usually done by pressing a button. 

When this happens, the software will compare the text with thousands or millions of web resources. This can take a few minutes for shorter texts, and once the scanning is completed, you’ll get a percentage. This percentage will tell you how much of the content is plagiarized. 

More advanced scanners will point out to the exact instances in the text that are plagiarized and even tell you the original source from which the content is taken. You’ll also get a plagiarism report. Some professors ask for a report that confirms that the content is 100% original. 

These scanners do not save the text you enter into them. They erase it immediately so that it never appears in searches and doesn’t appear as plagiarism when your professor scans your paper, too. Wherever you are, you can use such software – paid or free, to check your assignments and see if they are original. 

Let’s now break down the process of work of plagiarism scanners:

  1. They will identify the text elements in your file
  2. They’ll break the text into phrases and sentences that are logical and semantically relevant
  3. Check for similarities with the full base of publications, journals, and online sources
  4. Pass search engines to look for similarities
  5. Display the finalized report or percentage to the user

What Can a Plagiarism Checker Miss?

These programs are constantly improving and evolving, and some are considered flawless in detecting online plagiarized content. But, due to their nature, they cannot recognize everything. Things that a scanner cannot detect are plagiarized ideas that are entirely rewritten. 

Moreover, plagiarism checkers cannot detect translated content, text sourced from images, or non-text content. Finally, if educational institutions have their internal database where they store work from former students, and this database is not shared with others, a commercial checker cannot find the copied content. 

Should You Use Plagiarism Scanners?

You most definitely should, even if you think that your content is 100% original. Very often, when we use research data, we can unintentionally create copied content. You should know about this before you submit your paper. Based on the report, you can tweak your assignment and make sure to cite each source to avoid troubles at school.
