The Merriam-Webster dictionary describes plagiarism as “the act of using another person’s words or ideas without giving credit to that person.” In other words, copying from a source without an appropriate citation can be considered plagiarism.
Various factors can lead to plagiarism and these must be identified and resolved before even sending your document for publication. The extent of plagiarism is often incidental and the intention accidental. In most cases, “text recycling”—a comparatively innocent form of plagiarism, wherein authors plagiarize their own work—is the sole culprit of rejection from journals or any such avenues; incidentally, it is also the most common form of plagiarism.
However, this act is impermissible in any form and can lead to severe consequences, such as retraction after publication. Not surprisingly, most journals (regardless of their impact factor) have stringent rules against plagiarism and have several in-house software to identify it. Sometimes, these are integrated to their submission portals, making the upload of your document impossible. Furthermore, other publication avenues (dissertations, theses, conference proceedings, etc.) do not appreciate it either. Also, plagiarism is a federal crime in several countries.
We are here to help you deal with this conundrum … nay, resolve it!
Our Plagiarism Analysis and Rewriting Service aims at making your document as plagiarism-free as possible.
For plagiarism analyses, we use PlagScan© or iThenticate©, a trusted software, which specifically measures the quality of the text by testing the originality of a document.
One of our main goals with this service is to reduce any sign of plagiarism or text-recycling that may occur in the process of manuscript writing, may it be incidental or accidental.
We offer this service in three modules:
- What we provide: A plagiarism report produced using PlagScan© or iThenticate©.
- How does it help you: This report will estimate the percentage of plagiarized content in your original document.
- What we provide: Reduction in the percentage of plagiarized content + post-reduction plagiarism report
- How does it help you: Here we will require you to provide the original plagiarism report. Based on the percentage in this report, we will reduce the plagiarized content through paraphrasing and other suggestions, while retaining your presentation. The final post-reduction plagiarism report will be a PlagScan© or iThenticate© report indicating the final percentage of plagiarized content (after us working on it).
Plagiarism Analysis and Rewriting
- What we provide: Pre- and post-reduction plagiarism reports + plagiarized content percentage reduction
- How does it help you: This is the complete package; we will have you covered from the start to the finish, with regard to plagiarism reduction. This module includes pre- and post-reduction plagiarism analyses, along with the reduction service.
Our plagiarism reduction mainly involves paraphrasing. However, citation of appropriate sources will be required for eliminating plagiarism completely. We will try our best to indicate such instances; nevertheless, originally citing all applicable sources will ensure clarity from the beginning.
