Uploaded documents are only available to you in your Workspace. You can remove them from your Workspace.
When uploaded, your documents are not indexed by the system, and do not fall into the list of sources checked. Your paper will be indexed by the Antiplagiat system and included in the list of sources only if it is published in the public internet domain and processed by our search engine.
Uploaded documents are searchable by other users only if they have been indexed by the administrator of your organization. If this is the case, the document is added to the internal collection of the organization and can be checked. If the organization uses the Ring of Universities collection, then the document is made available for other Ring organizations to check. However, the full text of the document is not displayed, only matching fragments and information about the document are available. Full document texts are never available to other individuals and organizations.
A user with access to the corporate version of the system can also sign up as an individual. Products for corporate and private users are not connected to each other, therefore documents are only available in the system where they were checked. It should be noted that the results of checks in different systems may vary. This is due to the different number of search collections used for text reuse detection.
Yes, of course. Checks in our system are entirely trustworthy. It was developed by highly-qualified researchers and programmers, and uses modern analysis algorithms to identify reuse even if the text has been edited, like changes in word forms, rearranging words, etc. However, in any case, you should carefully review the check report and not rely solely on the system’s assessment.
The Antiplagiat system is primarily a tool for identifying identical text fragments. It does not evaluate the legitimacy or accuracy of reuse; this decision must be made by a subject-matter expert in each case individually. Only the conclusion of an expert can serve as the basis for any court proceedings. Antiplagiat system report is not enough for this.
The system provides a downloadable document check certificate. To give the it legal standing, additional certification is required by the signature of the responsible person and seal of your organization.
The system does not determine the presence of plagiarism. According to the dictionary, ‘plagiarism’ is the use of someone else’s work as your own, the illegal publication of someone else’s work under your own name, or the attribution of authorship. A check in our system shows the presence of text matches (the same or similar text fragments). The system does not determine the primary source and does not compare the publication dates of documents. The results of a check in the system cannot be interpreted as straight evidence of plagiarism, and carry no legal weight.
The system does not store copies of source documents (website pages, documents published online, etc.). When a new source is detected, the system indexes it, i.e. constructs special blocks of information, or indexes, and digital patterns of the documents which are used for further searching.
