Plagiarism Check

Have you used expressions from previously published papers and are now wondering whether the text could be interpreted by the journal as being plagiarised? Difficulty paraphrasing sentences and failure to cite reference sources could result in instances of accidental plagiarism. Such instances are viewed by journals as a violation of ethical publication standards and often lead to rejection. This could have negative repercussions on an author’s reputation and credibility as a researcher.

Our Plagiarism Check service helps you identify passages in your manuscript that might be flagged by the journal for accidental plagiarism. You will receive an iThenticate assessment and an expert assistance report that will guide you on how to revise your manuscript.
