The number of websites and blogs, as well as the amount of text in print and online, is continuing to grow exponentially. With billions of web pages and enormous collections of documents, articles, books or posts, it often seems that full control over the originality of content you are creating is starting to look like a mirage. From its primitive copy-pasting and content-scraping form, plagiarism has evolved into something far more complex, obscure, multifaceted and potentially dangerous. It may even be lurking behind any word choice or phrase that we genuinely consider to be a part of our individual writing style. Quite often, we can’t be sure whether these are our own thoughts, or they’ve been heavily influenced by something we have read recently (perhaps a long time ago). Sometimes, we are sure – but it turns out to be a mistake that may be detrimental to our current or future work and reputation. The probability of something quite similar to your thoughts already being published is ever increasing.

Plagiarism checker – a problem detector or a problem fixer?
A few years ago, when plagiarism detecting software was mostly used by professors, teachers and various educational institutions, it was fair enough to view it as a strict policeman catching reckless plagiarists, and therefore as a student’s worst enemy. Nowadays, “user friendly” is much closer in meaning to “user helpful” – a detailed plagiarism report produced by plagiarism checkers like Noplag is truly a writer’s best friend, helping to find forgotten or lost sources and to fix problems such as lack of proper citations or poor paraphrasing.
In the report (check the images below), you can see a certain percentage, or a total amount, of similarities, and highlighted sections of content matching what’s found elsewhere online or in print (potential plagiarism), but it’s not just an abstract and confusing number or amount of text. Each source shows the total amount of matched words and percentage of similarity. You can view the source and matched sections, and there’s also a feature that lets you exclude quotes to filter through the plagiarism scan results according to your needs and specifications.
Whether you are trying to avoid plagiarism in your own work, or to find it in someone else’s, this feature makes all the difference, ensuring that your task is going to be a breeze, not a pain!
You can download the plagiarism report and share it which your clients or colleagues, your teacher, student or friend. There is also an option to leave comments inside of the report – a unique feature that was once only available to teachers, but now it’s just another convenient detail adding to the fact of Noplag being a great professional similarity checker for all types of users.
